Cathédrale Saint-Etienne de Toulouse.

Beth and I happened upon this marvelously unusual cathedral during our explorations one day. It was built over several centuries and architecturally it is a mess - a very interesting mess. True to form, I liked it! It was difficult to make sense of, but there were lots of pretty parts! There were also beggars at the door that Sunday morning after Mass. A priest chased them away just as we entered.

Lots of gargoyles on parts of the exterior:

These pretty angels topped a nearby building.

Lots more photos from Toulouse yet to come. Toulouse is a really nice city.
