The Basilica of St Michael in Bordeaux, France is an example of elaborately decorative Gothic architecture. Built in the 14th century, the Church has a pulpit representing the Archangel St Michael slaying a dragon. The basilica has a separate bell tower 114 metres tall, dating back to the 15th century.

In the 1940s the stained-glass windows were destroyed by bombing, but replaced in the 1950s with modern interpretations of classic bible stories, some including Cubist elements.
