Description

Compared to the Basilique Saint-Sernin (a model of symmetry), the Saint-Etienne cathedral is a mishmash of styles. This doesn't matter; it still manages to be the most elegant building in the city. The façade, whose rose windows and entrance don't match the bell tower, is a result of years of construction and renovation work (1209-1613). The choir too is out of alignment with the nave. Its height recalls the Gothic cathedrals of northern France. The inside is a bit cluttered, but there are some good murals in the chapels. In the square outside is the oldest fountain in Toulouse, Le Griffoul (1546).
