St-Etienne's Cathedral of Cahors

Interesting
Built in the Romanesque style in the 12C atop a former 7C church, St-Etienne cathedral was altered first in the 13C then the 14C and finally in 1493 with the restoration of the cloister in the Late Gothic style and the creation of the St-Gausbert chapel. Inside, the Gothic east wall and west side connect to a Romanesque nave with cupolas. Its north door (1150) with its richly decorated tympanum, illustrates the Ascension and is a fine example of the Languedoc school.
