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.

Impressive Cathedral located in the heart of the city. From the outside, you can notice it has a Gothic-tyle and has a beautiful tall bell tower. Inside, the Cathedral is even more beautiful, with stunning stained-glass windows and elaborate decorations. The organ is huge simply amazing. The staff is friendly and informative, and they're happy to answer any questions you may have. Definitely a must-see attraction in Narbonne.
