Architectural Building Religious Site
Known for its expansive stained glass windows, Cathédrale Saint-Étienne d'Auxerre is one of the few cathedrals with original stained glass. Built between 1215 and 1233, most of the Burgundian Gothic cathedral is above an 11th century crypt. The oldest portion of the building is the crypt, and the most modern feature is the small cupola atop of the spiral staircase on the western tower with a Renaissance design.

  • The sheer scale of this beautiful cathedral is impressive as is its magnificent pipe organ. We were incredibly blessed to venture into the cathedral to hear the organist practising for a recital later...  more »
  • Beautiful Gothic Cathedral, located in the heart of the old town, here a nice place to pray and collect you away from the noise. Very well preserved and highlighted, the Cathedral St. Etienne will delight lovers of architecture and history.
