The Roman Catholic Cathedrale St-Front started out as a humble church and monastery named for St. Front, who was a hermit living and preaching there. Erected around the fourth century, it was destroyed and rebuilt several times over the years, due to fires, invasions, and other tragedies. The cathedral underwent an extensive 19th-century renovation, melding the styles of different eras and giving the structure its current appearance. Visit to see centuries of religious architecture in one spot. Work out when and for how long to visit Cathedrale St-Front and other Perigueux attractions using our handy Perigueux vacation builder.

It's worth to visit with the tourist office.
