Bordeaux, France 20078

The Basilica of St. Michael, Bordeaux, according to Wikipedia, is a Flamboyant Gothic church in Bordeaux, France, built between the end of 14th century and the 15th century. The pulpit represents Saint Michael slaying the dragon. [Many of the] stained-glass windows were destroyed during the bombardment of 1940. The separate bell tower, which is 114 meters tall, was built in the 15th century. In 1881 a Gallo-Roman cemetery and catacombs were discovered under the tower.
