Built of red bricks in a mix of styles over the centuries, the Cathedral of St. Etienne is the seat of the Archbishop of Toulouse.
The building is in fact a mixture of two churches, built on different axes and in different styles. The nave in particular is dwarfed by the more recent choir.
While hundreds of years of renovations and additions have left the building looking a little out of kilter and incomplete, with a sloping roof and mismatching brickwork, the cathedral has several points of interest including a beautiful rose window dating from 1230.
The Cathedral of St. Etienne is in the heart of the Old Quarter. The closest metro stop is Francois-Verdier.
