Just the walk to visit this place is fantastic. Once inside just stand and take it all in. Photos do not do show the place as it really is. Cannot describe. You just have to see for yourselves.

In the center of the old town. Unusual step down to the church from the front and side streets. Nice stained glass behind the altar. Side courtyard is pretty. Garden in the back of the church.

This cathedral is a real must see in Cahors. The cloisters are well preserved, the chapels beautifully preserved with a fantastic spiritual atmosphere.

If you are going to do the Camino, this is a place you must visit. MKe sure you check out the cloisters which are to the right near the altar

Roman catholic cathedral from 12th. Century. Just in the middle of the old part of Cahors surraunded of small and pedestrian streets. Declared by the UNESCO World heritage monument. Quiet place to visit with no much turists inside. Good indoor ilumination.

Guides to the region usually comment on the architecture (a mixture of Romanesque and Gothic) or the stained glass windows (a mixture of old and new), but for me the highlight was time in the cloisters. There is still a lovely sense of peace and contemplation here.

Well, after viewing the Pont Valentre there was only really one more attraction to see - the cathedral. The roads have been built up close to the cathedral and so there is not much opportunity to view the splendour of the architecture and the stonework and masonry.

A beautiful medieval cathedral with great architecture and a mixture of ancient and very modern stained glass windows. The best part is the cloisters - a lovely peaceful place with more great architecture and interesting stone carvings, plus a fantastic view of the exterior of the cathedral.

One of the key attractions in Cahors. Make sure that you do the Cloitre (free) and walk around the back of the block that the church is in to do the secret garden.
