Cathedrale St-Jean, Perpignan

(4.4/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
A Roman Catholic cathedral and the seat of the Archbishop of Lyon, Cathedrale St-Jean dates back to the 12th century. The Bourbon chapel is widely considered a masterpiece of 15th-century sculpture. In the cathedral sits the 14th-century Lyon astronomical clock, a sophisticated, highly sculptural mechanical clock featuring moving celestial bodies and religious figures. The two crosses to the right and left of the altar symbolize the union of the two churches. Also look for the grand cathedral organ with 30 stops, three keyboards of 54 notes, and pedals for 27. The ornate front elevation of the cathedral stands as a prime example of French Gothic architecture.

  • This Cathedral is quite unique in its architecture, but what makes it interesting for my taste. She is also fairly discreet outdoor but majestic inside. On the other hand, hard to find, the Cathedral is little arrow in the city unlike other sites.

  • The Cathedral of Perpignan is one of the must-see places when visiting the capital of the Catalan countries. She has a very outside view thanks to the place. Catalan architecture type. The Interior was refurbished recently. See the altarpiece.
