Belfort Cathedral is a Roman Catholic cathedral in Belfort, and has been a national monument of France since 1930.The building that is now the cathedral was built as a church between 1727 and 1750 by the businessman Henri Schuller to plans by Jacques Philippe Mareschal, king's engineer at Strasbourg. It was built of red sandstone excavated from the quarry at Offremont, three kilometres from Belfort.Although the church opened for worship in 1750, the north tower was not completed until 1845.It contains an organ by the organ-builder Joseph Valtrin, installed in 1752 and now classed as an historic monument in its own right.On 3 November 1979 the Diocese of Belfort-Montbéliard was created from part of the territory of the Archdiocese of Besançon.

  • Not very large but well made and well located. You come out with impressions of pink and gold, stone and the then. His visit perfectly complements the Citadel and the old city.

  • The Cathedral of Belfort is partly in the scaffolding but the rest is very fine. The Church is not huge but beautiful. He gave birth to us.
