LA CATHEDRALE SAINT-ETIENNE
With its architecture stretching across several centuries combining styles and its slightly lopsided air, this cathedral is worth a visit because of its organs that look as if they are suspended in the air.
Unusual, complex, eclectic: so many adjectives that define the style of this cathedral constructed from the V Century onwards. This incredible medieval construction brings together two Gothic styles: the Southern Gothic that is massive and powerful and the Northern Gothic style that is sleek and luminous.
We are seduced by its richly-sculpted headstones, its Baroque altarpiece, the grills and the ensemble of stained-glass windows. The chapels decorated with retables, tableaux and reliquaries form a succession of mini-museums.
Impressive, the organ cabinet from the early XVII Century, suspended in a « swallow’s nest », is the oldest in the city.
It is here that Riquet is buried, the famous designer of the Canal du Midi.
