Although its construction was never finished, Cathedrale St-Just is a former cathedral and basilica minor--and, today, an official French national monument. The site has been a place of worship since 313 CE, shortly after Christianity became a legal religion. Nearly 1,000 years later, worships started to build a Gothic cathedral here. Not much remains of the building, but the existing structure is noteworthy. Two Roman columns from the former Forum, once used in the nave, are now in the cloister. The steeple has been largely restored, but little else of the architecture has been preserved, save for its white marble lintel and aedicule, which are on display at a nearby museum.

Beautiful cathedral with stunning stained glass windows, chandeliers , tapestries and paintings. Their was an amazing stone sculptured chapel too and huge organ. Entry was free and a must to visit if in Narbonne
The cathedral is grand, dramatically lit, and beautiful both inside and outside. Inside it was quite dark but solemn. We visited the surrounding buildings as well for an affordable price.
