mirepoix cathedral is dedicated to Saint Maurice. It is gothic in appearance and it has a wonderful nave which measures 22 meters wide. This is unusual, as it is a single nave!

Very large cathedral for such a wee place. There's a labyrinth in one of the side chapels but it can't be visited. WWI memorial in side chapel speaks volumes of effect on such a small community, all the men who must have been related.
