Cathedrale St-gatien - Review

The Cathedral St-Gatien is a Roman Catholic Church in the city of Tours which is devoted to the first bishop of Tours, Saint Gatien. The cathedral is a must visit tourist attraction, although it is hidden inside the city and is very easy to miss. It has also a rather interesting history as it has been burnt down and rebuilt twice, most popularly as a result of the conflict between Henry II of England and Louis VII of France. The major highlights include:

  • The Cathedral St-Gatien is a classic example of a mix of Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance styles of architecture.
  • The magnificent stained glass windows each of which tell an interesting story.
  • A 16th century organ which had been donated by Martin de Beaune.
  • A small cloister towards the north of the cathedral that had been constructed during the Renaissance.
  • The tomb of the children of Anne de Bretagne and Charles VIII.

The cathedral is a short walk from the centre of the town and is located at the end of Rue Colbert which contains a number of restaurants to satisfy your hungry stomachs after the extensive tour of the cathedral.

  • Excellent cathedral. Not much crowd. Calm and Good for photos. In the night, marvellous light show : Illusion.

  • Wonderful Cathedral in Tours. The stain glass is wonderful and you can appreciate the artists skill through the many storyboards.

  • we saw the belfry behind building, so we took it as a mark, walk to it. after many allies, a huge cathedral suddenly in our front. we feel it's more great than it shall be. it's a surprise when you walk around the Tours.

  • Beautiful Cathedral. Apart from the new altar. An abberation. Completely out of keeping with the rest of the magnificent edifice. I could hardly believe my eyes.

  • Nice glass stained windows
