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.

  • Beautiful ships of former glory, too bad the courtyard serve as parking for vehicles of visitors

  • Located in the heart of the city with around his place and its arcades, very nice and very big Cathedral. As soon as you cross the threshold you're in a boat given the length of the building. The organ and the altar are beautiful. Lavish stained glass and paintings. Many pilgrims to walk out the door to collect himself before going on the way of St. James. See priority.

  • Beautiful outdoor building joined the world heritage of the UNESCO but stripped Interior. See the "Tomb" of Pope Clement V (Bertrand de Got)
