Not to be confused with its more famous namesake in Paris, this 11th century church is beautiful in its own right, with its elaborately carved facades and detailing.

I'm usually a church/cathedral "in and out" person with a quick look-see of tombs, chapels and stained glass windows, etc. This is a very pretty baroque church and we were fortunate to enter right before a service and stayed for the procession and to hear the choir and organ. The pipe organ is magnificent and the choir was superb. Try... More

One of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen! The effect of the skylight in addition to the general beauty of the church was just breathtaking.

This former Dominican chapel was going back to the 13th century in Gothic style. The interior is famous of its purity.

This is another lovely church. France is full of such churches, but it would seem we just cannot get enough of them. We are not religious at all, but love to look at and admire these architectural marvels.

Lovely little church that is well preserved and a nice glimpse into Bordeaux 's past. The church has some lovely art and is quite serene inside.

Another magnificent French Cathedral. You just can't seem to get enough of them while in France, but this one doesn't disappoint. You can light beautiful warm papers at several Saints and this is a truly a beautiful place to be. Take some time and rest and just observe. It's also in a beautiful neighborhood with lots of cool shops.

It's always difficult in a city with so many churches to pick one or two to visit, however I would recommend this one over many.the peaceful quite little area this church sits in is very calming. Inside there is no noise suggesting you are in a city. Ornate ceiling and walls, ideal seating for a pray or peaceful reflection.

It is a must see! The only complaint are people that work there. Not very polite and misleading. But the structure is marvelous. There is one thing I disagree that they do in Paris, they charge for every little thing . For example, headsets (5 euro each). They are not covered by your pass.

This plase is in UNESCO World heritage list, and it deserves it. It is anazing, beautiful and is a must see place. It is in the centre of the city of Bordeaux, which also is a beautiful historic city.

The outside is beautiful and hidden in a lovely little square that I had high hopes for the inside but it is really dark and without any lighting it lack any atmosphere. Great for funerals but not inspiring for an average tourist.
