Cathedrale Sainte-Marie de Bayonne, Bayonne
Categories: Churches, Landmarks, Tourist Spots
Massive, Gothic, and incredibly detailed, it comes as no surprise that Cathedrale Sainte-Marie de Bayonne took over four centuries to build. The Roman Catholic church serves as the seat of the bishop of the township and neighboring towns. Though originally of Romanesque design, two fires led to its total reconstruction in the 13th century. The current church wasn't completed until the 17th century, while its two landmark twin spires are 19th-century additions. Step inside to view the equally impressive interior, filled with art and stained glass windows.

It is worth visiting it without any doubt.show original

Also a Board, there is a small garden in front of the grand door, can be a beautiful picture of the 2 arrows with the trees of the garden. Otherwise the interior decoration is superb and magnificent paintings. Lift up your eyes and look at the ceiling for its colors.show original
