  • The Cathedral in Tarbes doesn't look like any other Cathedral I've seen in my travels. In particular, the exterior is not particularly homogeneous building due to its construction history. The oldest part of the Church, the distinctive Romanesque Tower and apse, is from 1100 century, and in 1300-century came the Gothic nave. The big house in marble above the Church's main altar dating from 1700-century. But there is under way in the Church's nearly 900-year history has been a series of other changes and restorations which have left their mark on the Church. The Church's name "Sède", comes from a Latin word meaning "Place" in the sense of "place", in French "Bishops ' Siège de l'évêque». The Church is full of works of art and decoration in the form of carved woodwork, paintings, sculptures and much more. In 1935 was the glorious French painter Maurice Utrillo in Tarbes, and he painted the Cathédrale Notre-Dame-de-la-Sède in snowy weather as seen from the north side with the small space with trees. This very lovely image belongs to fortunately Musée Massey in Tarbes, where you can see the image, if not the Museum has just chosen to place it in the archive, which was the case when I visited Tarbes in november 2017. Tarbes has two other churches that are worth visiting, but the Cathédrale Notre-Dame-de-la-Sède is without doubt the Church which is most exciting to visit.
