The Cathedral of St Etienne of Bourges, built between the late 12th and late 13th centuries, is one of the great masterpieces of Gothic art and is admired for its proportions and the unity of its design. The tympanum, sculptures and stained-glass windows are particularly striking. Apart from the beauty of the architecture, it attests to the power of Christianity in medieval France.
This is a stunning Gothic cathedral. The stained glass windows are the most effective and accessible I have ever seen. The carving on the west entrance is magnificent; however it is the interior and the windows that really impress.
The location of the cathedral adjacent to some wonderful formal gardens and close to the medieval centre of the city is a real plus.
