Cathedral Saint Andre, Bordeaux: 28 reviews and 83 photos
The portal has a flat top below which is a large Rose window . Under that is a row of eight lancet windows. The statues on the jambs are gone, but there are fine bas-reliefs at the bases of female figures (what do they symbolize?). Along the nave end of the south side are irregularly distributed massive blocks that serve as buttresses with "flying" arcs that support the nave (there are more on the north) added when it was feared the roof would collapse.
