About Cathedrale St-gatien, Tours

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.

  • 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.

  • Beautiful Gothic cathedral located in a nice historic town.

  • The cathedral is wonderful, you should make sure you come during the evening to the light show, which is designed to match the settings.

  • Enjoyed my brief visit during the day. If I had more time, I could have read the descriptions of more of the stained glass windows. Climbing the towers is off limits, but you can visit the cloisters for 3 euros. I heard that the church is supposed to look equally nice during the night with the illuminations. So I visited again the same night. However, it was not illuminated that night. Maybe they only do it on certain dates.

  • Beautiful cathedral which is one of the reasons we visited Tours. Very calm and charming neighbourhood.
