Cathedral of St Gatien Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
Started in the middle of the 13C and finished in the 16C, this cathedral illustrates the whole evolution of the Gothic style. The Flamboyant façade is particularly beautiful. Inside there is great purity of line. The chancel, one of the most beautiful of the 13C, is attributed to Étienne of Mortagne, architect of the Sainte-Chapelle in Paris. But, above all, the people of Tours are proud of the magnificent windows. The graceful tomb of Charles VIII's children is poignant.

    Pros

    La cathédrale et ses vitraux de nombreuses époques sont magnifiques. Ceux du 13ème siècle ont chacun droit à un panneau explicatif. Petit conseil: prendre des jumelles pour admiré le haut des vitraux qui sont presque indéchiffrable du sol. Des guides bénévoles se feront un plaisir de vous donné un mot d'explication. La cathédrale se veut un lieu vivant plus qu'un musée, grâce à eux, c'est une réussite.
