Church
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.

  • The cathedral is an impressive sight, and the surrounding village and hilltop 'palace' make for an awesome day trip. There are also a couple of great picnic spots if the weather is nice.  more »
  • The Cathedral in the town without a diocese. Built in the 11th-14th centuries, curved projection. Inside preserved Romanesque 11th century painting (in the Central apse). We were lucky to get into the Treasury, because there was a tour group. Available for visits to the cloisters, a small but very positive and friendly, with carved capitals of the columns.

  • Visited in October, we appreciate the cloister with the variety of fantastic animals, demons and plant capital.
