St Vincent cathedral was constructed in the XIIth century in the roman style. In the XVIth century, the Bishop Claude de Tournon led a lot of work on it, constructing a wonderful flamboyant gothic chevet. The walls of the nave, destroyed during the religious wars were rebuilt and it was only in the XVIIIth century that the architect Jean-Baptiste Franque gave the cathedral its current stone vaulted ceiling.
