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.

  • This Cathedral is beautiful and imposing. She puts on a small throne or he busted good s at a terrace of Café for l admire. The pediment is majestic and wide. Inside, you can see the architecture of a cathedral Gothic splendour ds. Some stained glass windows are beautiful with very supported colors. A statue dedicated to Jeanne d arc. After you can go visit the hotel city not far away...

  • Grandiose Cathedral, in the heart of the city, hand in almost everything. Inside me found me particularly cold (was December and cloudy atmosphere), so I recommend to take shelter depending on the season and weather. The organ is one of the oldest and most of Europe's large, and the truth which is very well preserved. Outside it is a beauty, but beware of the side facing the road, where there are few trees "infested" with birds. What that causes is that the soil is full of cagadas (which rain is pure POO quagmire) and that you can crap as you pass underneath (I say this from experience: P). If you can, surrounded the Cathedral by the Town Hall square to avoid that area ;)
