Gothic monuments

Narbonne has a premium heritage of religious architecture, particularly in the Gothic style. The St Paul basilica, a former collegiate church of Roman origin, is a remarkable example of primitive gothic. It is highly probable that its choir is the earliest example of a gothic choir in the south of France.

Notre Dame-de-Lamourguié, is a deconsecrated church which was once part of a priory. It belongs to the southern gothic style, characterised by an unornamented appearance and a unique naive plan.

Based on techniques developed in the north of France the cathedral of Saint-Just–et-Saint-Pasteur has audaciously ogival crossed vaults, among the highest in France. In one of its radiant chapels you'll discover a work of art unique in Europe - the Great Notre-Dame-de-Bethlehem altarpiece, a jewel of gothic sculpture from the 14th century.
