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 Cathedral was rebuilt in the Gothic style of the XII century. In this church were celebrated in 1137, the marriage of Eleanor of Aquitaine, with the future Louis VII, and in November 1615 marriage of Anne of Austria, Infanta of Spain and Louis XIII King of France and Navarre. Well watch the tympanum of the North Gate, the large barley. Especially to take his time.
