Owner description: This beautiful 17th century church is one of Bordeaux's main attractions.
Reviewed 2 April 2018

In my opinion, St. Andre Cathedral is an iconic part of Bordeaux. It is one of the best examples of gothic architecture.
A little bit of history: The cathedral was consecrated by Pope Urban II in 1096. It was rebuilt in Gothic style from the 12th to the 16th century. In this church, the royal marriages were celebrated. In 1137, Eleanor of Aquitaine married the future Louis VII. In 1615 Anne of Austria, Infante of Spain, married Louis XIII, King of France and Navarre.
It is a major tourist attraction and it is free. A must see.

Given Bordeaux is the seat of the Archbishop so needless to say this Cathedral is fitting for someone who would have commanded a lot of power in the day. It’s

The classic style, the Gothic atmosphere and especially the organ and its celestial music give uniqueness and sense to the cathedral
