  • After having discovered Saint-Front Cathedral, rebuilt in the 19th century in the firefighter taste of the time, discover the Church Saint-etienne is refreshing. Although it lacks a dome on the original three, we're in a church of the 12th century. Little Photoshopped, she a guard a little Romanesque atmosphere of his youth.

  • Of course, you do not spend an hour to visit but she is worth a visit! Architecture comparable to those of the Cathedral and of the sacred heart

  • The tourism office of Perigueux has a map (in English) with two history walks. The ‘Gallo Romain’ walk includes the St. Etienne church. Though the parts of the present building date back to the 11th century, its fundaments go back to roman times, the building is situated within the wall build in a hurry as the roman empire collapsed. The building functioned as the first cathedral of Perigueux until the Protestants destroyed two of its cupolas and the bell tower in 1577. With the construction of the Saint Front cathedral, it lost its functions and the remnants became a cavalry training center. The design follows the ‘ecole du Perigord’ with its typical lines of cupolas. Other well known examples from Cahors, Souillac, Solignac and Angouleme, and of course the Saint Front cathedral of Perigueux. The western cupola retains its 11th century Romanesque integrity, whiles the eastern cupola was restored during the 17th century and given Gothic arches. Inside the church (it has since reclaimed its function) are a number of interesting relics. Interesting stop on the historical walk.
