1 review of Saintes Cathedral

A beautiful building

Built between the twelfth and the fourteenth century, the Cathedral of Saint Pierre de Saintes is a beautiful building with a copper dome. The treasures housed here are some of the most famous in the region, including some beautiful antique pieces, like a silver chalice. There have been many royal visits to this site, by Charlemagne, various kings of France, and even Napoleon. Since its reopening in 2013, they have displayed a painting of the new pope, Francis.
