Basilique of Saint-Seurin

The recently restored Basilica of Saint Seurin is one of the oldest churches in Bordeaux. It was built in the 11th century on an ancient burial ground. Evidence of Christian burials from the 4th century have been found here, proving a Christian presence in Bordeaux from this time of antiquity. There was much to photograph in this church including a wonderful old crypt beneath this church.
Today the Museum of Aquitaine also stores and displays pieces from a Basilica that was excavated from beneath this church. There is a tour that descends under the church to view these ruins but we have not taken it.
