As my title says its nothing incredible but worth seeing if you're in the area. I seem to remember a metro nearby if walking is an issue too. Wasn't open when I went so walked around it but am sure its nice inside

A very interesting architectural monument. From the beginning incite you the different styles of the two entrances. Inside everything must be admired. Take enough time to view each beauty that will appear "around the corner" It is very different and therefore exciting. It's especially when you're alone in the cathedral and playing the organ !!! You can relax !!!

Very different layout to the other cathedrals we have seen throughout France. But all the same pretty spectacular. If you are to visit this Cathedral give yourself a couple of hours to visit the surrounding area. Extremely interesting and visually pleasing.

The cathedral St Etienne was built between the 13th and 17th centuries. There is a mixture of architectural styles and the result is an unusual mixture of designs and shapes. An enormous building, the cathedral is interesting to visit, but some internal parts seem to be in desperate need of renovation. The cathedral is located a little way from the... More

People do rave about St Sernin, but the cathedral is absolutely delightful and most unusual. Its surroundings are also appealing, and the interior deserves close examination.

Approached it from the little fountained square to the west. The front is very ornate but looks as if it ought be an interior feature. Once inside you find the nave is only a chapel because some time later it was decided to start all over again and you take a zig-zag into the nave proper. The style is pure... More

What makes this cathedral interesting are its odd external and internal features, which are due to the fact that it is a combination of two otherwise incomplete churches.

This Cathedral is a hybrid of one section from the 11? century to which they have stuck a full on Gothic section. Amazing because they don't quite line up. Absolutely fascinating place to visit.
