"Cathedrale Saint Andre" Bordeaux Local Custom Tip by KiNyA

Bordeaux Local Customs: 12 reviews and 22 photos

In 1137, the future King Louis VII married Eleanor of Aquitaine in this cathedral. The exterior wall of the nave dates from 1096 (most of the rest was built in the 13th and 14th centuries). The 15-th century belfry, Tour Pey-Berland, stands behind the choir, which has chapels nestled among the flying buttresses.
