Stunning for its size, the cathedral is also one of the only things to see in Perigueux! The stained glass was interesting, some of it for the images, and much of it because there were no images, instead just geometric patterns - I took pictures of those as they reminded me of possible quilt patterns!

I am not religious but couldn't help be blown away by this building. The architecture is stunning and you find yourself just staring in amazement. What an achievement to build. Wow!

This Cathedrale is breathtaking, and for an extra treat they were tuning that organ and the sound inside the place was beautiful, then the noon time bells were ringing and it just made for a perfect moment.

Perigueux is a really nice town, with a magnificent church. The church is beautiful thanks to the cupola's. If you're spending a couple of hours in Perigueux, go to the church!

Guided tour would help. Large 5 domed cathedral with unusual roof decoration outside - binoculars needed though. Visited during cultural weekend

If you are a lover of cathedrals, churches and especially choral music, make sure you are here on any sunday to listen to the choir sing with the huge organ. Admire the brilliant edifice designed by the architect of Notre Dame in Paris and relax in summer in the coool interior. A beautiful, calming location.

We happened on a ceremony that showed off the fabulous acoustics of this historic structure. Acapella- just wonderful. Beautiful setting in a quaint town. Great time to visit - not too crowded and great weather.

The Cathedrale St-Front in Perigueux was one of the most beautiful Cathedrale's we have seen, this majestic building over looking the lovely old town, with its many domes, beautiful stain glass windows and architecture, this is a must to visit.
