    Description:

    The early 12th-century church of St. Front, Périgueux is a close copy either of San Marco in Venice or its model the Holy Apostles (destroyed) in Constantinople. Such a connection can only mean that the patrons were embarking on a bid to have Saint Front, a shadowy figure who converted the region in antiquity, raised to a status equivalent to that of the Apostles themselves. This bid was probably inspired because the church was one of the pilgrimage sites on the route to the Cathedral of Sant…

It is noted for its Renaissance rood loft built in 1534 and for the fine, partly octagonal, bell tower. The tower is 205 ft high, the three lower storeys being Romanesque and the four upper ones Gothic. The main artistic works in the cathedral are the Renaissance rood s…

    Description:

    The square central bell tower dates from the 12th century.

    The outer walls of the present cathedral of St Trophîme are normally assigned to the Carolingian period. The church was reconstructed with a nave and aisles in the Romanesque style during the first quarter of the 12th century, and a new Gothic choir was built in the mid-15th. The Romanesque sculpture can be divided into four distinct groups: the nave capitals, the façade and the north and east cloister galleries. The nave capitals, w…

    Description:

    It was formerly the seat of the Bishop of Saint-Pol-de-Léon, a bishopric established in the 6th century and abolished under the Concordat of 1801, when its territory was transferred to the Diocese of Quimper. Since 1901, the cathedral is also “Basilique Mineure de l'Annonciation.” It is dedicated to its 6th century founder, the first bishop, Saint Paul Aurelian. The present building however, although on the same site, was built in the 13th century (with later additions). The cat…
