A UNESCO World Heritage Site and the city’s oldest church, this austere and imposing building is most famous for it’s crypt. Saint Fort, Merovigians and innumerable Christians are buried here in tombs from as long ago as the 4th century. It was built during the Romanesque period, but picked up quite a number of Gothic elements like the massive pillars rising to the nave and the richly ornamented chapel. It contains the relics of the St. Armand and St. Seurin, and was once rumoured to contain Saint-Peter’s staff here and Charlemagne Roland’s horn. No wonder then, that it was a very popular pilgrimage destination. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Bordeaux itinerary 1 day.

This church is an amazing spot. There's tons of historical facts to check out. You might see sometimes some onsite archeological researches and some areas would be restricted then. If you come to Bordeaux it is a must see and as it is close to the center you will be able to find nice restaurants and commodities few walks away
The surrounding of the basilic was tranquil and alluring. I enjoy the evening walk over there.
Fire damaged in June 2018. Closed for repair renovation.
One of the more beautiful churches in the city. Definitely worth a visit. Interesting local devotion inside. Archaeological interest too in the crypt.
Large and awe-inspiring, don't miss the underground area with the tumbs
