Cathedral of St. Apollinaris

Listed under Churches & Abbeys in Rhone-Alps, France.

Pin It

Valance Cathedral was rebuilt in the Romanesque style in the 11th Century – one of its architectural highlights is its aspe, built as that time. It was slightly ravaged during the French Religious Wars but rebuilt in the 17th Century. Pope Pius VI died here in 1799, which is probably the church's main claim to fame other then its attractive architecture. Pius has a monument here.
