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

(4.5/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This is a huge gothic cathedral.Got some lovely pictures here.It is close by to lots of bars and restaurants.In a lovely setting.  more »
  • In Central Bordeaux stands the Cathedral of St. Andrew. From stylish Gothic, its outside (of which a part has been restored recently) is worth the look. The Interior is less impressive
