Saint Bertrand is a quaint medieval village with stunning views of the valley below. The cathedral has beautiful architecture and rich with history. The village is worth the drive to see.

This is a must see place for anyone visiting this part of France. It is a superb cathedral with a rich history in a beautiful hilltop village setting. Inside the mainly Gothic building there is a complete wooden renaissance chapel, which takes up the majority of the interior. An extraordinary construction - there is a remarkable frieze above the altar... More

Park in the low city and climb by foot towards the high city. You'll pass some very interesting medieval houses before you reach the Cathedral. Half Roman half Gothic and very impressive. It will cost you 5€ per adult and 1.50 per child to see the unmissable cloister and stalls. Audio guide is a MUST. Clear and detailed in all... More

This former cathedral has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site as part of the World Heritage Sites of the Routes of Santiago de Compostela in France. After paying the 5 Euros each to enter the cloister and the Choir Stalls, we were a bit disappointed that we could not get access to the rest of the church. It... More

Generally, the church has a nice cloister and some very good carved wood choir stalls. The organ is famous and it is worth scheduling your visit around one of the concerts in the church. The walk around the church gives good views of the foothills of the Pyrenees. The 12th century church of St. Just at Valcabrère is a short... More

The cathedral is very wayward from Montrejeau. This is Southern France, Pyreness Mountains. Although not very obvious from the main road. Once you turn in from the main road, you will be able to see this attraction perched on the top of ht hill! The architecture has a lot of wood involved. There is a big courtyard with very beautiful... More

This very inspiring Cathedral can be seen from many kilometres away and does not lose its grandeur on closer inspection. The Cathedral is in two sections: the first is for the general public and I presume its congregation and can be accessed up the main steps and through the front door. It may appear to be closed but do not... More

This is a very loved cathedral - the white walls and gorgeous stained glass windows shelter some impressive wooden choir stalls. Three eras of building and art are visible here, from the Romanesque to the renaissance.
