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.

  • A must if you are passing in bazadais. Quiet, serene, majestic Cathedral on a nice place.

  • The Cathedral is currently in the works and should gradually regain all of its past splendor. It is a nice building with the nave of a very pure Gothic with an interesting collection of stained glass of the 19th century.
