It was an overcast day when we visited so it was very dark inside but still amazing dimensions and stunning architecture. Built originally as a cross shape and then had extra smaller chapels added so it has evolved over its long 'life'. Many different facets...More

Trekking up the steps from the riverside was a major undertaking with 347 steps to ascend but the view is worth the climb. On the way you pass a statue of d’Artagnan before you reach the entrance to the church on the right.

I am in no way religious but the architecture of this place is stunning. Both the exterior and the interior, which is filled with sacred art. Beautiful and cool on a hot day too.

Because the parvis was totally displaced for a major restoration project and littered with machinery and construction materials, it was difficult to appreciate the major facade of this church. Hopefully, those who visit in the years ahead will get the benefit of this transition!

Sadly when we visited Auch the front of the Cathedral was being repaved. So we went in the side entrance. It's absolutely amazing inside, sadly there wasn't any information sheets in English but still a beautiful place to see.

This cathedral is stunning and well with the visit. Took 200 years to build and there is an area within to visit for 2€ each, worth the visit.
