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.

  • The Cathedral is very beautiful on the outside and inside. We 3 times until we can work out a schedule that was open. We look forward to the end of the mass on the outside, because the people who were in the corner next to the altar, waiting for the visit were very rude and drew the attention of who was in the Church. The Church has paintings by the inner walls, all very beautiful!

  • A French Gothic-style Cathedral. Very nice and neat shapes and classical works of art. The portals are considerable.

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.
