This cathedral is within view of the Hotel de France and is something you must not miss. Beautiful, very old, and revered.

Take a walk around the grounds and down the Escalier Monumental to the statue of D'Artagnan. If you can be there for the organ playing, stay to listen.

Located on top of a hill overlooking the river Gers, right in the middle of the old town. If you arrive from Toulouse, on the avenue de la 1ere Armee francaise, the view is very impressive. The outside is a classic gothic cathedral, with beautiful gates and flying buttresses on the side. The porch looks a bit unfinished but the twin clock towers are impressive. But the real jewels are inside. The stained glass window by Arnaud de Mol from the Renaissance period have beautiful colors and designs. Enjoy then while you walk in the ambulatory. Inside the choir, which is an enclosed area, you can admire one of the most incredible stalls made of oak from the area which trunks were kept into the river Gers for decades to strengthen them. About a hundred seats depicts scenes from the Bible. A must-visit for those who venture in this part of the Sud-ouest.

This is quite a recent cathedral by French standards (18th century), but a very large one that dominates the old town of Auch. The wooden choir is magnificent. If you are in the Gascony area, this is well worth visiting.
