We don't know exactly why but we are very impressed with this cathedral. Perhaps it is because of the great atmosphere or because beautifully decorated interior with great clock inside of cathedral.

If you are walking around Bordeaux, this is a nice stop. Beautiful Cathedral and located amongst other point of interest. There's currently some work (believe cleaning the outdoor stone) but it is only one a small part.

This was a beautiful cathedral with stunning views from the top. It was quite a climb but worth it once you got to the top.

Stunning cathedral in a beautiful location. The interior is stunning, when we visited Children's choir music was being piped and it really added to the ambience.

Start out by taking in the spires. This is gorgeous gothic architecture. There is work currently underway to open up the royal access to the cathedral, but that is a minor annoyance unless you're looking for photos from that angle.

This cathedral is stunning. It has amazing carvings on the exterior and so much more to see on the interior. The Gothic architecture is stunning but there is also a warmth to the building which you don't always find in these imposing buildings.
