“Beautiful old cathedral”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

The original choir room and organ were magnificent. I wish I had been there on Sunday to have heard the giant organ. There were many beautiful carved wood choir seats. It was built around 1400's, elegant but not gaudy. The stained glass windows were unusual.

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

“A beautiful cathedral”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

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.

“Beautiful stained glass windows and stalls”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

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.
