Cathedrale St-Etienne, Toulouse

3.8
#4 of 14 in Historic Sites in Toulouse
A bizarre mix of architectural styles from the 13th to the 17th centuries, Cathedrale St-Etienne has a Raymondine nave, a Northern Gothic choir, and a 16th-century gabled belfry. The beautiful but worn tapestries circa 1609, by Jean du Mazet, and the Baroque retable of the high altar are particularly noteworthy. In 1610, Pierre Monge of Narbonne carved mythological and pagan subjects from walnut in the choir stalls. The walnut case of the organ, rising 17 m (56 ft), above the floor was carved at the same time. The organ used for concerts was restored in 1868 by Cavaillé-Coll, and again in 1976.

  • One of the best cathedrals in Toulouse. Beautiful stained windows, altar and artwork. Very well preserved and great architecture.  more »
  • The peculiarity is the provision of ships, totally unusual. It was built from the 11th century on an early Christian settlement. You are now in the works but you can visit safely.

  • If you visit only one church, be it this one... its splendor is unmatched. personally, I didn't like the feeling of Saint-Sernin, yet well known, but of it, Saint-etienne, emanates a unique atmosphere, something great that's good. P.S. don't miss the Church of the Carthusians also...
