We arrived at about 1600 on a Saturday and both the church and adjacent spire were both closed. The Basilica is in a gothic style with many spires and is dedicated to the Archangel. The church appears to be in need of a serious exterior...More

The modern stained-glass windows are just wonderful... If you're up for it, the 230 steps up the adjacent bell tower give you a fantastic panoramic view over Bordeaux... (and a chance to visit the crypt).

there are definitely nicer and more impressive churches in Bordeaux. still it is worth the visit for the market held on the square and for the skyscratching tower infront of it.

If you get the chance, visit this church, if only to see the fabulous, modern, stain glass windows. This is a lovely church which contains the old architecture with some beautiful art. Really worth a visit.
