Viviers is a very important place in the history of the Catholic church and features in the stories of many of the great saints, which could be why this small settlement has it's own cathedral – qualifying it as a city, but a very small on at that. This church is still the seat of the Bishop of Viviers.

Built in the 12th or 13th Century, Viviers Cathedral, or the Cathédrale Saint-Vincent, isn't the grandest church around, but its marble altar, under a white dome, and Gothic apse are quite lovely. There are some interesting pictures in the cathedral's collection, and some Gobelins tapestries.

It's very beautifully lit up in the evening.
