Cathedrale St-Just, Narbonne

4.5
Although its construction was never finished, Cathedrale St-Just is a former cathedral and basilica minor--and, today, an official French national monument. The site has been a place of worship since 313 CE, shortly after Christianity became a legal religion. Nearly 1,000 years later, worships started to build a Gothic cathedral here. Not much remains of the building, but the existing structure is noteworthy. Two Roman columns from the former Forum, once used in the nave, are now in the cloister. The steeple has been largely restored, but little else of the architecture has been preserved, save for its white marble lintel and aedicule, which are on display at a nearby museum.

  • A shame to get around town and not being able to visit the Interior given the hour, magnificent externally but I also believe that the interiors glorify all art Gothic buildings

  • Superb cathedral. The stained glass windows are gorgeous. The organ is impressive. The whole is very well preserved. The cloister of the Cathedral is in the process of rehabilitation and partially inaccessible. For the visit to this monument, silence and a covered outfit are requested.

  • The outside can be somewhat off-putting, even a bit scary due to the imposing hight and massive structure. Inside a place of peace and quiet, very high ceiling and enormous wooden organ. One can walk ...  more »

  • Impressing cathedral. It's a must go in Narbonne. The interesting fact that the building was only partly finished which gives you a lot of insides of building cathedrals.
  • There was someone playing the organ while we were there, amazingly atmospheric
  • Lovely cathedral in the centre of narabonne, has an art gallery and a few museum exhibits inside as well which you can get a ticket for just 6 euros.
  • Impressive size.
