Bazas Cathedral, Bazas

4.8
Bazas Cathedral is a Roman Catholic church located in Bazas, Gironde, France. It is a national monument.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.

    Look, in the ambulatory, right will derive the altar, a striking Supper: Jesus looks away what awaits him, the Apostles look at him with devotion, and quite right, Judas and his black Halo has a look worthy of a thriller...

    This beautiful city, with a wonderful Cathedral both inside and out, we visited by accident. In March of transfer was coffee time, and seeing from a distance the silhouette of the Cathedral we squeezed toward the Center. The Cathedral is located on a large square with a large number of restaurants, all bursting with customers. All really nice.
