#572 Foulayronnes, France

Auch Cathedral Basilica ( Basilique Cathédrale Sainte-Marie d'Auch) is a Roman Catholic cathedral, and a national monument of France, located in the town of Auch in the Midi-Pyrénées. It is the seat of the Archbishopric of Auch, which under the Concordat of 1801 was suppressed and added to the Diocese of Agen, but restored in 1822.

The cathedral contains a suite of 18 Renaissance stained glass windows by Arnaud de Moles.

It's located on St. James' Way, inscribed as Routes of Santiago de Compostela in France and so it's part of UNESCO WHS.

Date of Inscription on the List of UNESCO WHS: 1998

Thank you, Patrick !
