"the fascinating things you were saying about the cathedral . . .' Oh, St Front,' said Gerald,"

The cathedral dedicated to St Front (Cathédrale Saint-Front de Périgueux) is in the commune of Périgueux in the Dordogne department of southwestern France. It was built in the 12th century, and restored in the 19th century.

St Front has been the cathedral of Périgueux since 1669. Prior to that, another church, dedicated to St. Stephen, was the cathedral; it was known as Cathédrale Saint-Étienne-de-la-Cité de Périgueux.
