Bourges - almost in the middle of France - is the most southerly of the classic French gothic cathedrals - with the exception of Rodez cathedral. Like Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, it has two aisles on either side of the nave. The cathedral is remarkable on many accounts, but more particularly for its magnificent thirteenth century stained glass windows, all round the choir. These are among the finest and most complete in France. Each window is devoted to a theme from the scriptures.
