St-Etienne's Cathedral of Cahors

Recommended
St Étienne Cathedral was built in the 12C in the Romanesque style and altered in the 13C and 14C. From 1493, the cloister was restored in the Flamboyant-Gothic style and the Chapelle St Gausbert built. It has a composite appearance: a domed Romanesque nave linked to a chevet and a western front resembling a fortress. It is the expression of the power of the bishops of Cahors. The north door, formerly the main door, has a richly decorated tympanum illustrating the Ascension.
