An impressive church both inside and outside. Took us a while to find it among the twisting streets. Not as elorabte as St Andrews.

We stopped in to view this church while walking around the old city in Bordeaux. Impressive structure, but not recommended for those with allergies. The mold smell is overpowering.

Usually open and substantial church. Interesting windows. A 10 minute walk from the centre but located in an interesting residential area.

We are moving to Bordeaux to live, paint, write and enjoy life. We found the Notre Dame by accident, but as of next Sunday, it will become our new church.
