Saint-Etienne Cathedral Masterpiece of Gothic Art

Saint‑Etienne Cathedral

This cathedral is dedicated to Saint Stephen and knows for its large stained glass windows.

A masterpiece of Gothic art, Saint Etienne Cathedral has just one tower.
Its façade is worth a few minutes of your time to have a look at the various sculptures that depict the life of the time.

The 15th and 16th century stained glass windows are also worthy of a close look. A final tour down to the crypt to look at the extremely rare painting of Christ on horseback, and to the Treasury, which holds a number of collection pieces, including The Deposition from the Cross by Luca Penni.
