We came across Eglise St Pierre while wandering around the streets of the city, near the river. It is a large building which dates back to before the 12th century. It has been rebuilt a few times and it's worth visiting to admire its lovely architecture as well as the nice stained-glass windows. It is not really decorated in any elaborate manner, but if you are nearby you might as well have a look.

Perhaps I would enthuse more about St.Pierre in a city that was not quite as choc-a-block with stunning churches and cathedrals as Bordeaux. But compared to many of these, it appears relatively modest.
It is, though, undeniably pretty with some unusual adormnment externally. Also, as others have observed, it's very peaceful.
St.Pierre sits in a shady, tranquil, small square that makes you feel you're in the middle of a small town rather than a busy city.
This makes St.Pierre well worth a visit, to step out of the frenetic pace of the centre for a period of stillness and calm, even if it will not quite knock your socks off like St.Andre or St.Michel.

It's predominantly 15th century church located in the Saint-Pierre district - check out the carved facade, altar and 19th-century stained-glass windows illustrating the life and story of St Peter.

This a wonderful church inside and out . It was built in the 1500's on the ruins of an ancient church from the 1100's. Stunning architecture inside and out. The stained glass was the highlight for me. As well as the paintings and sculptures.

Even if you don't care for churches in general visit one of the many Gothic buildings just to get the feel of history and the cold inside. Saint Pierre was built in the 15th century on the ruins of a previous older church in the typical yeollow lime stone easy to carve. Looking closer at the main entrance you will see small monsters crawling among other creatures. The stained glass windows were replaced in the 19th century and bring enough light inside in day time. There is a Jesus statue surrounded by old thank you notes carved in marble.

If you have read many of my reviews, I love churches with beautiful stain glass. Maybe it is because I work with it so much. This church has a lot of glass and it is really magificent to look at.

Perhaps not the grandest or prettiest church in Bordeaux but a very nice, quiet church nonetheless . The stain glass windows are particularly beautiful and they are all over. Look for the angel seemingly glued or nailed to the ceiling above the altar. Unusual. Interesting statues and it's an uncrowded, peaceful place to pray and just regroup in a serene place while walking around old town.

This is not one of the prettiest or more ornate churches to visit, but it does have some nice stained glass windows.

There is no admission fee, so it is worth a quick look around if you are already in the neighbourhood. It isn't really worth going far out of your way to see.

This is a lovely church with so beautiful stained glass windows that one must go inside and see them up close to really see the finer detail

The church is not on the direct route so needs some searching to be found but should be done to see its great architecture

Recommended

Enjoy

Small pretty church. A little out of the beaten path but so serene when you enter. Compels you to stay longer.
