St. Andre Cathedral (Cathedrale Saint-Andre), Bordeaux

4.4
St. Andre Cathedral (Cathedrale Saint-Andre), 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 (Cathedrale Saint-Andre) represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Bordeaux trip itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

  • Similar to many, many other European cathedrals, this was nicely located and pleasant to visit. Happy we stopped in.  more »
  • The Cathedral and its Tower (Pey-Berland) are absolutely beautiful. The view from the top of the tower is worth the climb to the very narrow staircase. The Interior of the Cathedral is impressive.

Where to stay in Bordeaux

Most hotels in Bordeaux sit conveniently located a stone's throw away from the train station. Look to Quinconces Square and Gambetta Square for high-end hotels. Those who prefer more budget-friendly accommodations may want to seek out a youth hostel--a relatively recent addition to the city. To secure a spot here, make sure to book ahead of time. In addition to hotels and hostels, choose from guest rooms in a typical Bordeaux house, or a family-friendly beachside campsite.
