Saint‑Lazare Cathedral

All about Medieval History

Dominated by its high 15th-century stone spire, it remains one of the major works of Cluniac art, built between 1120 and 1130. The tympanum of the “Last Judgment”, the biblical scenes of the capitals, the famous “Eve” (exhibited at the Rolin Museum) were sculpted by Gislebertus.
The cathedral has been completely renovated.
