Cloister, Cahors Cathedral (Cathédrale Saint-Étienne de Cahors), France


This photo was taken in the Cahors Cathedral (Cathédrale Saint-Étienne de Cahors), a Roman Catholic cathedral and a national monument of France in the town of Cahors, Midi-Pyrénées. It is an impressive example of the transition between late Romanesque architecture and the Gothic. A door on the right of the choir gives access to the Flamboyant Gothic-style cloister, built in 1504 by bishop Anthony of Luzech. It has scenes of everyday life and a Madonna.
