Cathédrale Saint-Etienne de Cahors

Built between the XI and XII centuries, the Saint-Etienne Cathedral Cahors was rebuilt in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. The building is part of the domed churches. There is no transept.

The early fourteenth century, the choir is completely redone in the Gothic style. The large sacristy and side chapels also date from this second phase of construction

Renovated during the sixteenth century, the cloister suffered the ravages of wars of religion. It was not until the nineteenth century that work together to restore the cathedral to its former glory.

Inside the cathedral is the Holy Cap surrounding Christ's head. Since 1998, she is a World Heritage Site under the road to St Jacques de Compostela.
