With its unique design - no transept, five aisles - Saint-Etienne of Bourges represents one of the finest examples of early gothic architecture. The massive structure of the west façade contrasts with a nave that, uninterrupted by a transept, seems to go on forever, and dizzingly high aisles. Saint-Etienne was built mainly between 1195-1250, consecrated in 1324. Work on the towers continued until the 16th century.
