Home | Heritage and history/ | ST STEPHEN’S CATHEDRAL AND ITS CLOISTER


Built from 1221 and completed around 1500, of Romanesque plan and Gothic construction, Saint Etienne Cathedral is the symbol of Toul's rich past. Its flamboyant facade, the richest part of the building, contrasts with the austerity of the radiant Gothic style that is mainly present in the rest of the building.

The cloister was built in the 13th and 14th centuries. 54m by 42m, it is one of the largest in France. An interesting series of gargoyles completes the set.

A dedicated leaflet is available at the Maison du tourisme. 

  • From mid-June until the European Heritage Days - from 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., a guide is present every day at the cathedral to welcome visitors and curious people. Possibility to climb in the south tower in summer.
