The Cathedral St.-Étienne


During the 12th century, the cathedral St. Étienne was probably built instead of a Carolingian building of the 9th century. After that, the cathedral was heavily damaged during religious wars and restored at the end of the 19th century.

  Cap d'Agde
 
The fortress character is underlined by the massive lava rock of the Mont St-Loup. The walls of the cathedral are two to three metres thick and ornamented with machicolations and battlements resting on arches. The bell tower is 35 metres high. During the 19th century, some houses were pulled down on the banks of the Herault to make room for the West facade. The nave is vaulted with a conical buoy which is supported by a transverse arch. In the nave, there is a bull’s eye. By means of a rope it was possible to transport food and ammunition through the bull’s eye into the interior of the cathedral. The rectangular choir towers above the nave and gives the building a T-shape. The retable of coloured marble originates in the 17th century as well. Both marble capitals at the supporting pillars of the triumphal arch are said to have belonged to a former building. Remarkable as well is the pulpit consisting of marble (18th century).
