Cambrai Cathedral

Local nameCathédrale Notre-Dame de Grâce
LocationCambrai, France

Cambrai Cathedral is a Catholic church located in Cambrai, France. The cathedral is a national monument, and is the seat of the Archbishop of Cambrai.

It was built between 1696 and 1703, on the site of a former 11th century building, as the church of the Abbey of St-Sulpice. During the French Revolution the old cathedral of Cambrai was destroyed, but the abbey church survived because it was used as a Temple of Reason. When the ecclesiastical status of Cambrai was restored in 1802, albeit as a diocese rather than as an archdiocese, which it had previously been, the bishop's seat was established in the surviving abbey church, which became the cathedral of Cambrai. Cambrai was again constituted an archbishopric in 1841.
