Different and majestic cathedral

Périgueux Cathedral, named "Cathédrale Saint-Front", is the main point of interest of the city, and it has been named a World Heritage Site from UNESCO as part of the Camino de Santiago. Catholic and constructed in the 17th century Romano-Byzantine style, in white stone on the mound, is lovely especially at night when artificial lighting highlights it by calling the attention of everyone in the zone. For many years, is was seat of the Bishop of Périgueux and Sardat, taking into account the importance of this building. It was dedicated to St. Stephen, patron of the city. It left us speechless, different and majestic, considering that we arrived to Périgueux by chance, and never imaged (without prior information) to find a cathedral like this. Of the most recommended places if in the zone.

Saint-front cathedral, it is your own...

Saint-Front cathedral, it is your own landmark in Périgueux. Are you lost? There is always a piece of bell tower and beyond to help you reach the city center. Besides, the Cathedral of St Front is a World Heritage Site, and has inspired the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris! The interior is a bit dark because it has not been renovated but the details are superb, huge chandeliers, beautiful stained glass windows, a beautiful altar ... Everything is designed to make it an essential part of your visit to Périgueux.

La cathédrale Saint-Front, c'est un peu votre point de repère à Périgueux. Vous êtes perdus ? Il y a toujours un bout de clocher qui dépasse et qui vous aidera à rejoindre le centre ville.
Outre cela, la cathédrale Saint Front est classée au patrimoine mondial de l'UNESCO, et a inspiré la basilique du Sacré Coeur de Paris !
L'intérieur est un peu sombre car il n'a pas encore été rénové mais les détails sont superbes, des lustres immenses, des beaux vitraux, un bel autel... Tout est réuni pour en faire un élément incontournable de votre visite à Périgueux.

A unique cathedral

The famous five domes of the Cathedral of St. Front call us to navigate the streets of the city. Its Byzantine look gives it a unique character and is close enough to the Basilica San Marco in Venice. The Tourist Office of Périgueux organizes tours throughout the year favoring access impenetrable places everyday. This is the famous architect Abadie undertaking the restoration of the monument in the nineteenth century by adjusting the domes. It is a building not to be missed!

Une cathédrale unique

Les fameuses cinq coupoles de la cathédrale Saint Front nous appellent à naviguer entre les ruelles de la ville. Son allure byzantine lui accorde un caractère unique et se rapproche assez de la basilique Saint Marc de Venise. L'office de tourisme de Périgueux organise des visites tout au long de l'année privilégiant des accès aux lieux impénétrables au quotidien.
C'est le célèbre architecte Abadie qui entreprend la restauration du monument au XIXème siècle en ajustant les coupoles. C'est un édifice à ne pas manquer !
