  • A surprising exterior architecture that combines a 19th façade and a Romanesque sanctuary of the 12th let you discover an interior dominated by the canopy of the choir. Too bad it's so dark (perhaps due to a morning visit until the Sun gets really into the building by the stained glass windows?)

  • Superb monument of Tarbes, built in the 12th century. It has an undeniable charm and a particularly rich history. See especially the Pyrenean marble canopy, the organ classified (where works are regularly saved) and the St-Louis Chapel, which contains, engraved on black marble, the testament of Louis XVI. Read also, it (is very moving and edifying. The story can be read on the walls, so the changes have been many over the centuries. Very many works of art inside: stained glass, paintings, wood, gold, etc. Sede is a dialect word which means "seat" or cathedra in the case of the seat of the Bishop. The headquarters is in the Cathedral of the diocese of Tarbes-Lourdes effect

  • The oldest monument in the town of Tarbes. Close to the place of Verdun. We went up to visit the birthplace of Foch. Pity that the garden next door is closed.
