This Roman Catholic Church, which is a wonder to behold, is one of the most beautiful examples of what Gothic architecture has to offer as a style of architecture. The Saint-André Cathedral, which is more commonly referred to by locals as simply the Bordeaux Cathedral, can be found in Place Pey Berland in the middle of the downtown area of Bordeaux.

It is a destination that should not be missed by those interested in history, art, or architecture. The very structure of the cathedral, which rises imposingly yet with a sublimity, inspires the feeling of reverence. The Cathedral was constructed between the years 1730 and 1775, and it has withstood the test of time as well as the blunt brunt of mankind. King after king and pope after pope has come and gone, but the Cathedral has maintained its calm and steadfastness over the ages.

The majesty and splendor of this cathedral are abundant, and this particular structure is at the top of the heap due to the fact that its interior decorating and design have been beautifully preserved.

How to explore St. Andre Cathedral?

  • The illustrious Royal Gate of the cathedral was constructed sometime in the early 13th century. When you enter through these gates, you will feel like royalty!
  • A national monument designation has been bestowed upon the complete structure, including the detached bell tower known as the Tour Pey Berland. Climbing the neighboring Pey Berland tower will allow you to observe the cathedral from a fresh perspective.
  • In addition to the dizzying bell tower located directly next to the main structure, the gothic cathedral also features two towers just over the main entrance. It is still a place of worship where the masses are held every Sunday, and it still serves as the seat of the Archbishop of Bordeaux-Bazas. Pey Berland, in whose honor the bell tower and the surrounding square are named, was the previous occupant of this position. more more
