Description:
Bordeaux Cathedral (Cathédrale Saint-André de Bordeaux) is a Roman Catholic cathedral, seat of the Archbishop of Bordeaux-Bazas, located in Bordeaux.

The cathedral was consecrated by Pope Urban II in 1096. Of the original Romanesque edifice only a wall in the nave remains. The Royal Gate is from the early 13th century, while the rest of the construction is mostly from the 14th-15th centuries. The building is a national monument of France.

In this church in 1137 the 15 year old Eleanor of Aquitaine married the future Louis VII a few months before She became Queen.

A separate bell tower, the Tour Pey-Berland is next to the cathedral.

It is served by line A and line B of the tramway de Bordeaux at Station Hôtel de Ville.
