Cathedrale St-andre - Review
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.

Cathedrale St-andre, Bordeaux Reviews
The organ in this church is absolutely huge! When you walk in, make sure you look to the right, to the back and admire the giant organ pipes. As most churches in Europe, this one has it's history too. The interior is lined with small chappies and tombs. I'm not positive of the truth of it, but I've heard that the nights Templar was suppressed here. The bell tower is made of limestone and therefore not attached to the church for safety reasons and has a limited number of visitors allowed a day. I heard the view from the top is great, but I was not able to make it on a day that there was any availability. I've gone to many churches in Italy and Spain but not in France, I was surprised because it was late summer and I was in a tank top but wasn't asked to cover up my shoulders or knees. There is no entry fee, but they do take donations.
I'm not religious however this building is well worth a visit. Amazing structure
This stupendous cathedral had an intrinsic design which one could take a long time to study every detail. It took my breath away.
The gothic characteristics are striking and dramatic. We went on a Sunday and it was not too busy, only one large Asian tour group. There is much to see and you can walk around for a good 20 minutes for the non religious.
It's one of the most impressive and beautiful building in whole the city, absolutely must-see place, good suplement is visit in church tower nearby.
