Saint-Lizier Cathedral can refer to either of the two former co-cathedrals of the town of Saint-Lizier in France, Notre-Dame Cathedral (Cathédrale Notre-Dame-de-la-Sède de Saint-Lizier) and St. Lizier's Cathedral (Cathédrale Saint-Lizier de Saint-Lizier), dedicated to Saint Lycerius, an early bishop of Couserans, after whom the town itself is also named.The town of Saint-Lizier, although now severely depopulated, was formerly the seat of the Bishop of Couserans, due to an historical dispute between the town of Couserans and the bishops, which caused them to settle in Saint-Lizier instead. The diocese was abolished under the Concordat of 1801.

  • Quietly located site with view of the Pyrenees. Unexpected demonstration with birds of prey in the garden of the Palace.

  • This Cathedral is beautiful, both inside and outside. The cloister is very well preserved and the superb fresco. In the summer concerts are great during the festival. The Treasury is not to be missed!
