St Peter's Cathedral, Saint-Flour

Interesting
Initially built as a Romanesque basilica (1396), what was to be this Gothic cathedral was completed in the late 15C, on the orders of the Duke of Berry. The lines of the five naves are strikingly simple. Under the organ loft, a 15C mural depicts purgatory and hell. Opposite the pulpit, admire the large wooden Christ (13C or 15C), known as the "Beautiful Black God", the 15C pietà in the Chapelle Saint-Jean-Baptiste and the gilded bronze reliquary containing the relics of St Flour, in the apsidal chapel.
