  • It is an impressive, massive church with surprising decoration. The adjoining cloister is tiny but very well preserved. It's really a site to visit if you pass nearby.

  • Saint Bertrand is a quaint medieval village with stunning views of the valley below. The cathedral has beautiful architecture and rich with history. The village is worth the drive to see.  more »
  • I like me stay in this place that I know well, on the way to St Jacques de Compostela. A place that we call the little mont st Michel.

  • Impressive cathedral with relicts of saint Bertrand and incredible wooden organ. But the inner part with altar as well as gardens are payed by 5€ per adult.
  • This cathedral is breathtaking, don't hesitate one second to visit inside.
  • Nice time for a wedding. The site is very nice. Park downstairs and take the little train which brings you the top of the village because his climbing not bad. The Cathedral, its heart and its cloister sound very nice. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

  • Magnificent cathedral, classified Historical Monuments and registered in the world heritage of UNESCO. Located at the foot of the Pyrenees in one of the most beautiful village of France. A cloister with a view of the mountains, stalls carved in wood, an organ perched on columns... a small merviel. For lovers, a site not to be missed.
