No trip to Périgueux would be complete without a visit to the Cathedral. Free to enter although I made a donation in the box in the wall 😇 peaceful and calm.

Beautiful historic place. We stopped here as we were driving on highway - on our way from Fatima to Prague. This cathedral and this city were well worth the time.

it was raining so a perfect opportunity to go inside and have a look at this cathedral and I wasn't disappointed. It was stunning. We lit a candle and took it in the awe of this building and its design and respectfully left.

Amazing Cathedral in the heart of the city of Perigueux, a beautiful city in the Dordogne, the historic city is very beautiful and clean, the buildings are excellent for photography.

It is a large Norman basilica, with domes. It is as impressive inside as it is out. Not to be missed if you are in Perigueux.
