The Roman Catholic Cathedrale St-Front started out as a humble church and monastery named for St. Front, who was a hermit living and preaching there. Erected around the fourth century, it was destroyed and rebuilt several times over the years, due to fires, invasions, and other tragedies. The cathedral underwent an extensive 19th-century renovation, melding the styles of different eras and giving the structure its current appearance.

  • the dome roofs, a fascinating interior with enormous pillars, the room-light impression is majestic. The altar piece was made of walnut wood, which seems to be a rarity. The roofing is reminiscent of St. Mark's Basilica in Venice.... St Front, with its portico remnant, which looks like a STadt fortress, is definitely worth a visit

  • An architectural marvel A visit is required regardless of our religion, simply for the happiness of admiring the talent of the builders of a bygone era The icing on the cake is sometimes the opportunity to hear an improvised organ concert by a young organist A do not miss the visit and/where to admire from the outside under no circumstances This Cathedrale is really worth a visit

  • One of the most beautiful cathedrals in the region. There rests a stone pope effigy and you can see his lace sleeves so delicately carved its hard to believe they are in stone.
  • UNESCO world heritage site. Lovely Cathedral. During the holidays the City of Perigueux broadcasts a Christmas movie onto the walls of the Cathedral. The town comes out to enjoy. Must visit.
