Cathédrale Saint-Pierre

A Striking Cathedral
  • Neighborhood: Cathédrale/Université
  • Category: Religious Sights

Description

Despite lying in a relatively out of the way part of the historic city center, and unknown even to many residents of the city, the exterior of Saint Pierre Cathedral is distinguished by its twin towers rising above the surrounding buildings. The current entrance is by the unassuming doorway in Rue du Cardinal Cabrières, next to which one can still distinguish the marks of shots fired by Royalist troops in 1815. Worth noting is the restoration of 19th-century stained glass windows and the many paintings, most notably the demise of Simon le Magicien by Sébastien Bourbon (1621).
