From the moment you arrive in Rodez, Notre-Dame Cathedral will guide your steps...

The edifice, made of pink sandstone, stands out thanks to its western façade, resembling a fortress, and which was once part of the town's ramparts, but also because of its bell tower. This delicately elaborated tower standing 87 metres high has been the town's symbol for centuries.
From its military architecture to the finesse of the stone lacework, it took three centuries (13th to 16th) to build what is now one of the most imposing cathedrals in the south of France.
Inside, visitors are struck by the seven figurative stained glass windows by the artist Stéphane Belzère, where contemporary creation blends in with traditional Christian iconography.
Don't forget to pay a visit to the Embergues district, not far from the cathedral. Here you will find a rich architectural heritage, where medieval residences stand side by side with 17th and 18th century townhouses.
