Beautiful!

Lovely gothic cathedral, and not crowded with disrespectful tourists. If you love gothic architecture and sacred art, this is definitely worth your time!

It is hence a mix or Roman simple architecture and Gothic more elaborate and refined style. Beautiful tainted glass. Nice spacious square outside with a huge xmas tree (end of November) and elegant nearby town hall.

St Andre Cathedral is interesting both from a religious as well as an architectural point of view. The clerical authorities have gone to great length to explain what the Cathedral is about and some of the basic Christian beliefs. The actual building is an interesting mix of styles; the nave being full of light and the sanctuary dark because of... More

Lovely cathedral centrally located with a separate bell tower outside. Climb the bell tower for a great view of the cathedral from above. The climb in the tower is narrow and gets even narrower at the top.

Located next to the City Hall, this beautiful edifice is lovely inside and out. Take the tram one way and walk back through the neighborhoods and shopping streets of town.

The cathedral was just steps away from where we were staying, so we had the chance to see the exterior of it numerous times before our interior visit.

Loved this Cathedral both inside and outside. Gorgeous in every way. Outside is under some construction, but it does not take away from the beauty of the architecture. The square outside the Cathedral is a perfect stop to enjoy the sunshine and sip a drink!

One of the most beautiful Cathedral in the southwest of France. One of the key characteristics is that the bell tower is not above the Cathedral but beside. Same thing with Saint Michel church. So, visiting the Cathedral and Peyberland tower is an absolute must
