Create an itinerary including St. Andre Cathedral
St. Andre Cathedral, a French national monument, hosted the 1137 marriage of 13-year-old Eleanor of Aquitaine to the future King Louis VII. It is also a Roman Catholic church that serves as the seat of the Archbishop of Bordeaux-Bazas. The original cathedral was consecrated by Pope Urban II in 1096, though most of what visitors see today is from the 14th and 15th centuries. Of the original Romanesque edifice, only a wall in the nave remains. However, you can still view many historical treasures, including the Royal Gate from the early 13th century. A visit to St. Andre Cathedral represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Bordeaux trip itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

  • The windows in the Cathedral are spectacular. The Rose windows (3) rival those we saw at Notre Dam in Paris.
