We visited September 2016. It is being very slowly cleaned, some scaffolding, the results are lovely. Not too ostentatious inside. I found the engineering, making it stand upright, more interesting than anything else. Free, or donate.

Beautiful, large and awe-inspiring - look out for remnants of the original paintwork on some of the columns.

Exceptional Cathedral with great art and sculpture. The surrounding square was full of people and cafes were nearby to sit and watch the world go by.

Flying buttresses outside, amazing soaring pointed arches and lovely ancient stained glass inside. Once inside heaven seems closer and possible.

A stunning symmetry of design and history not to be missed in Bordeaux ,away from the hustle and bustle of the City tranquility and peace awaits through the door way into St AndreCathedral. A truly beautiful Cathedral well worth your time.

Both outside and in this building is amazing ! Pay 2 euro extra once inside and see fabulous church treasures in an exhibition in one of the side chapels.

Lovely location to collect your thoughts and have a few quite moments to yourself. The roof detail and lead lighting are outstanding. The cathedral is very well cared for.

If you're in the area and like to visit churches and cathedrals, I would recommend a visit here It's free to enter but they accept optional donations which are not demanded or requested. You can light a selection of candles which are around €2 each for the large candles .. I felt this was reasonable The building is huge inside... More

Of course the cathedral is beautiful and huge but even better is the tower next to it! The climb is definitely worth it for the view on a clear day!

Wonderful exterior and even better inside with multiple chapels, statues etc. Restricted opening hours so check beforehand. You don't need to be religious to appreciate the wonders of the building and the serenity of the place. 30 minutes or so spent in here will not be wasted.
