Narbonne is an important town in the department of Aude in Languedoc-Roussillon that was once the capital of the first Roman colony in Gaul and later a capital of the Visigoth kingdom.

The main attractions in Narbonne are conveniently situated close together in the centre of town, in and around the the Place de l’Hotel de Ville. They include the Bishops Palace and the Cathedral:

The Palais des Archevêques (the Archbishops Palace) is a very imposing building including various styles and is dominated by a large 13th century tower and two other medieval towers. There are actually two Palaces here: the Old Palace in the roman style of architecture, and the New Palace in the gothic style.

The palace now holds the Town Hall for Narbonne as well as the Archaeology Museum and a Fine Arts Museum. Le Cour de la Madeleine, the old palace courtyard, is entered through a gateway, and the area is dominated by the Saint Theodard bell tower and the cathedral.

Despite its size the cathedral  is in fact unfinished with only the choir completed. Finishing the building would have involved demolishing part of the city walls and so work stopped in 1340, and was never resumed after the town was invaded by the Black Prince in 1355.

Excavations at the site have revealed three older religious structures predating the current cathedral.

On the outside the structure is lovely to see with its large flying buttresses. Inside it is the height of the cathedral which is impressive and it has some very impressive 14th century stained glass windows, and in the treasury you can see various interesting artefacts including a Flemish tapestry of the 15th century depicting the creation of the world. You can visit the cathedral cloister and the garden for particularly good views of the cathedral façade.
