Bordeaux Cathedral

The genius will explore what you can pay for!

Bordeaux Cathedral (Cathédrale Saint-André de Bordeaux) is a Roman Catholic cathedral and seat of the Archbishop of Bordeaux-Bazas, similar in size to the Notre Dame in Paris. The cathedral was built in Gothic style and has a beautiful 15th century tower. The cathedral was consecrated by Pope Urban II in 1096. The building is a national monument of France.  

On the east side of the church is a single 47 meter tall bell tower, called the Tour Pey-Berland. It was named after the archbishop who built it in the 15th century. The tower stands apart because the cathedral was not considered strong enough to withstand the heavy tolling of the bells. 

In July and August organ concert are held in the church, usually on Tuesdays at 7.30 PM or Thursdays at 5 PM. 

Address: Place Pey Berland, 33000 Bordeaux
