I have continued my search for high quality, narrated video tours of important landmarks around the world, especially Castles and Cathedrals.
This post explores the Bordeaux Cathedral in Bordeaux, France.
According to Wikipedia:
Bordeaux is the world’s major wine industry capital. It is home to the world’s main wine fair, Vinexpo (fr), while the wine economy in the metro area takes in 14.5 billion euros each year. Bordeaux wine has been produced in the region since the 8th century. The historic part of the city is on the UNESCO World Heritage List as “an outstanding urban and architectural ensemble” of the 18th century.
Within the cited UNESCO World Heritage area is the Bordeaux Cathedral, also cited on the World Heritage List.
Bordeuax Cathedral History
Excerpted from Worldsiteguides.com
Bordeaux Cathedral is a Roman Catholic cathedral and the seat of the Archbishop of Bordeaux. The construction of Bordeaux Cathedral was an ongoing process between the 12th and 16th century. Thus, it took almost 400 years to fully complete it!
Some parts of the outer walls dates back to the earliest phase of the construction, but the majority of the cathedral was built between the 13th and 15th century.
