Cathedral Saint-Lizier

The cathedral was built in the 11th Century. The cathedral has a Gothic-styled octogonal belfry, and contains a collection of Romanesque frescoes.

The town is named in honor of its 6th Century bishop Lycerius, canonized as Saint Lizier, a bishop who participated in the Council of Agde in 506.

Saint-Lizier Cloister

Right: Cloisters

The cathedral's Romanesque cloisters have carved capitals.

The cloister is topped off with a gallery that was added in the 14th Century.

Saint Lizier is a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its significance on the ancient pilgrimage route across the Pyrenees to Santiago de Compostela in Spain (along Saint James’s Way).

Thanks by my friend Christopher Johnson for sending the photos.
