Must see · Religious Site · Tourist Spot
St. Andre Cathedral, a French national monument, hosted the 1137 marriage of 13-year-old Eleanor of Aquitaine to the future King Louis VII. It is also a Roman Catholic church that serves as the seat of the Archbishop of Bordeaux-Bazas. The original cathedral was consecrated by Pope Urban II in 1096, though most of what visitors see today is from the 14th and 15th centuries. Of the original Romanesque edifice, only a wall in the nave remains. However, you can still view many historical treasures, including the Royal Gate from the early 13th century. A visit to St. Andre Cathedral represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Bordeaux trip itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

  • This is an okay church but certainly not comparable to others around France. It's got a couple stained glass windows that are pretty. Take a half hour to walk it then move on.  more »
  • Beautiful Cathedral in the heart of the City. Simply beautiful. Free entry and certainly worth the time to wander around. Stunning stained glass.  more »
