Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Tulle

The Cathédral Notre-Dame de Tulle, built in a roman and gothic style, was built in the twelfth century and is now classified as a historical monument.

The Cathedral is an ancient Merovingian abbey church built between the twelfth and fourteenth centuries, as part of the renovation of an ancient Merovingian abbey which was partly destroyed in 1796. The bell tower, on top of a long arrow forms a height of 75 metres. There are two large shrines dedicated to transept from the twelfth and thirteenth centuries and a sixteenth century statue painted in chestnut wood representing Saint John the Baptist.

The cathedral cloister dating from the thirteenth century, today houses the Museum of Popular Arts and Traditions. The other monastic buildings have been converted into a museum.
