Bazas Cathedral, Bazas
(4.8/5 based on 55+ reviews on the web)
Bazas Cathedral is a Roman Catholic cathedral, and a national monument of France, located in Bazas, Gironde.Bazas was the seat of the Bishop of Bazas until the French Revolution and its main attraction is still the cathedral dedicated to Saint John the Baptist, so named because the blood of John the Baptist was venerated here. The cathedral dominates the town and stands at the east end of a wide, open space called the parvis.The cathedral dates mainly from the 13th-14th centuries, and was built on the model of the great Gothic cathedrals of northern France. The west front is unique with its three noticeable levels: the first includes the three Gothic portals retaining part of their original 13th-century sculpture; the second includes the rose window from 1537; and the third is a Neoclassical gable from 1723. The belfry on the north is part 11th century up to the openings.

  • Impossible to pass to bazas without paying attention to this magnificent cathedral, observant or not it's to visit!

  • the place is beautiful, the Cathedral has already been partially restored. The keystone of this is reflected in the font right upon entering the Cathedral. To wear the look at height of it and the image of the hull of a ship appears. If you have the chance to visit this place when the organist repeats Jean Sébastien Bach's works... then the miracle is accomplished and you'll stay more than an hour. This place is also a stop for the pilgrims of the way of St James.

  • Very impressive building located in a plaza sympatica, traditional and quiet where you can take a coffee sunning in the winter
