300 metres by foot from the hotel La Résidence, you can discover the cathedral of Saint-Just and Saint-Pasteur de Narbonne.
Begun in 1272 in the radiant Gothic style then in vogue/fashion in northern France, it will never be finished. It is therefore only the choir, completed in the 1330s, which can be visited today.
Currently, the choir of Narbonne Cathedral, with its impressive dimensions (57 m wide, 52 m long and over 40 m high under the vault) remains the highest and largest in southern France. A visit to the interior of the building is essential to discover, next to the tombs of the archbishops, the remains of the sculpted altarpiece from the second half of the 14th century, the various tapestries that adorn the walls, the stalls and the organ of the 18th century.
Not to be missed, the treasure hall, located in the cathedral, was built in the early 15th century, to serve as a meeting place for the Chapter. Of square plan, an ellipsoidal vault at the origin of a surprising acoustic phenomenon covers it. The collection is essentially made up of precious liturgical objects, reliquaries, manuscripts and tapestries, which bear witness to the magnificence of the Archbishops of Narbonne.
In the heart of the Cathedral Saint-Just and Saint-Pasteur you will find restaurants, shops and can extend your visit along the Canal de la Robine where you can come and enjoy a glass of wine from the region at the bar of the Hotel la Résidence…
