We had a day out in Dax by train from Bayonne. It was a Sunday and we weren't sure what would be open. Took a taxi from the station and asked him to drop us at the cathedral. There was a service when we went in with wonderful singing. The church was extremely full and after a few minutes enjoying the the choir we left. Whilst we waited for the service to finish we found a paper shop which sold town plans. The tourist info office was closed this Sunday in November. The cathedral is built in the neo classical style. It is the last of 4 churches built on the same site. It has preserved a huge and very impressive 13th century door. It is large and covered highly carved. Also when we visited the storage area for several pine trees - ready for Christmas? It has a most impressive dome with a bright painting by Tastet, an artist from Bordeaux. All in all an impressive church. Worth a visit. We found a photocopied description in English. Not all French churches have such info.
