About Cathedrale St-andre, Bordeaux
Seat of the Archbishop of Bordeaux-Bazas, this once Romanesque cathedral now displays extensive Gothic influence.13 year old Eleanor of Aquitaine was married here in 1137 only months before she became queen. Often compared to the Notre-Dame in Paris, the cathedral has it’s own deep solemnity. Beautiful statues, charming murals, and intricate carvings can take hours to appreciate. The church also hosts concerts; a must experience, so check the timetable on the website. The annual International Organ Festival of Bordeaux is held in this Cathedral; played on the great organs, the music is fantabulous.

Beautiful, peaceful edifice. The nave was unlit but the transcept and apse was dimly lit and atmospheric, with recorded organ music playing.
Majestic cathedral in Romanesque or gothic style... sadly during our visit there was a big wedding so we couldn't appreciate the interior.. hard to find parking so we park with all the wedding guests in front of the cathedral... farmers market on the side of the church is good for locals and visitors..Beautiful place
Grand and beautiful, both inside and out. If there isn't a service happening, you're allowed to walk in and around the inside. Their organ is spectacular.
Thousand-year cathedral. Gothic style. Impressive though intimidating building. Quiet enough for prayer.
Huge cathedral with beautiful views from the belonging tower
