The cloister of Bayonne Cathedral was built between the 13th and 14th centuries. The flamboyant Gothic structure is one of the most spacious in France.
It has been used for several purposes over the years: a place of prayer or procession, a cemetery and a public square. Public figures and corporations also regularly held meetings there.
Well worth a visit, the cloister now houses a wide range of vestiges and affords clear views of the adjoining Cathedral of Saint Mary as well as providing a haven of calm from the bustling market activity in the centre of Bayonne.
To ensure the safety of our visitors, the monument is strictly applying the security measures decided by the french authorities. The monument is fully opened.
