Old Cathedral of Saint-Nazaire

Interesting
Perched on the cliff overlooking the River Orb, St Nazaire cathedral was the symbolic seat of power for the bishops of Béziers from 760 to 1789. The rose window at the west end is 10m/33ft in diameter and flanked by two fortified 14C towers. The chancel, remaining from the Romanesque cathedral, sports 11C carved capitals. Beautiful sculptures in the cloister galleries. Splendid view from the Bishops' Garden.
