Narbonne Cathedral, Narbonne, Aude, Languedoc

The Basilica of St Just and St Pasteur towers above the city of
Narbonne, and provides a potent viewpoint from the surrouding hills and vineyards. This photo is taken from the 14th century cloister, that provide an access point from the adjoining Archbishop's palace. The cathedral was never completed - which is a great pity - and one feels slightly cheated when walking around inside, that one sees only half a masterpiece.

However don't put this off visiting this cathedral that matches on equal terms the grandeur of the cathedrals in Northern France
