Absolutely loved the Cathedrale St-Etienne. Although we hadn't planned to visit it, we saw it basking in the glow of the afternoon sunlight, and decided to pop in for a quick look since we were already in the area, and ended up staying a good 45 minutes. The cathedral is nothing short of spectacular. From the organ to the stain... More

This is one of the most beautiful cathedrals I ve seen in my entire life. And I love the outside more than the inside. The outside of the cathedral is just so imposing and inspiring. And the statues remind me of the hunchback of notre dame :)

As you stand outside the cathedral, you find it rather odd. This is due to the juxtaposition of buildings which have been brought down or left half-constructed. These were erected in the 11th, 17th and 20th century. As you enter the cathedral, it has a very strange, puzzling effect : instead of an altar, you see a big column. The... More

an impressive consstruction, this gothic cathedrale, with its high columns. And kind of a weird constrution also, as the entrance part (built earlier) does not fit with the main part of the church. instead of being built in a straight line, it is shifted to the side. I did not find out why, as nothing about it was at display.

Under restoration, looks large and impressive from the outside, didn't see inside unfortunately. Easily accessible from the centre of Cahors.

Nice historic, nice places around. The Cathedral is the only church of Toulouse to have preserved its original stained glass windows dating from the fourteenth century to the oldest. It has an altarpiece by Gervais Drouet 16705. We find that the same statutory "Pietà" in raimondine nave which also houses the baptismal font. The Gothic nave is surrounded by 15... More

This cathedral is an odd place, which makes it worth visiting. It has a rather plain southern gothic nave.

At present, September 2015 the Cathedral is closed to the public for renovation. You can just see it from outside and is still amazing. Nice patio in front full of peace, people go there sit, talk, eat or even sleep in the grass. After the renovation it should be great.

this church is an incredible anomaly. A beautiful, austere basilica church in the front, and the a gothic church was attached at the altar, but off center, so that when you walk into the basilica, you see a massive column rather than an altar. the newer church is under renovation so hard to get the whole feeling. you need to...

Cathedral is under construction, but still blissful in its beauty. Really superb artwork, great paintings and ceilings. Once it’s finished with restorations will be superb.
