The Cathedral in Bayonne, Pays Basque

The exterior is a trove of real architectural treasures.
The interior has beautiful stained glass windows, the nave with seven arched bays dominated by the triforium gallery, the baptismal font, the choir, the chapter house. 'Elegant' is perhaps the best word to describe the whole edifice.
