Next to the townhall and at Hotel de Ville station you can find this amazing cathedral. It's by far the most beautiful of all of Bordeaux's great churches. We enjoyed the walk around the church and premises, but would have loved any information in English about history and specific objects which is there not to find on Wikipedia.

We've visited the Cathedrale St Andre a few times. It's a starting place for us in Bordeaux when we have friends & family visiting. We're not overly religious but visiting the church/cathedral in any town or city is one of those touristy things that we tend to do. In the case of St Andre its next to two converging tram... More

The Cathedral is large and opposing having been added to through the years. Having taken in the bus tour we learned that several French monarchs have married here. There wasn't much available in English, but this didn't spoil our visit. There are candles for sale and small gift table where you can purchase information guides about the church. The stained...

Cathedral is not huge, but it is well restored and definitely worth a visit.Set in a large square across from City Hall.

Wonderful architecture with good stained glass, and a fine setting in the square near Hotel de Ville. The golden figure atop the spire is a fantastic landmark. The lower part of the nave has wonderful 'white' light from the clear glass windows.

Part of the unesco walking tour I mentioned before this church is a gem. Grand, well kept, central. They play gospel music inside which creates a nice atmosphere. It's free to enter and the rosary windows are a sight to see. There's a tower next to it that provides a fantastic view of the city.

Very nice stained glass. Unusual form, with the north door having the twin towers and rose window. The royal portal just west of it is also interesting.

The first time we tried to get in the cathedral was closed, despite the posted hours, as was the tower. The tower is free with the City Pass.

Same as other? There seem to be two TA attractions with the same name. No feeling - no atmosphere, but I guess it's a must see if you are in the city? 1754.
