Mirepoix - Cathédrale Saint-Maurice - Nave with organ by Beausoleil Star this if you like it!

Saint Maurice is listed on Google Maps and many other places as a Cathedral but it hasn't been the seat of a bishop since 1801. It is the parish church of Mirepoix and important because it has the second widest nave of a gothic church in Europe. Only Girona in Spain is wider. In medieval times, the Bishop of Mirepoix was seated here and it was officially a cathedral. It was renovated at one time by Viollet-le-Duc and is still impressive with many side altars and much of the paint remaining.
