Grenoble Cathedral (Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Grenoble) is a Roman Catholic cathedral, and a national monument of France, located in the town of Grenoble. It is the seat of the Bishop of Grenoble (since 2006 Bishop of Grenoble-Vienne).
Some remarkable examples of Renaissance art can be found in the cathedral, including a 15th Ciborium in the flamboyant Gothic style. Unfortunately the Ciborium was damaged in 1562 by baron des Adrets, during the Wars of Religion.
The cathedral was entirely remodelled during the 19th Century by the diocesan architect Alfred Berruyer. The innovative concrete facing added by Berruyer was removed in 1990 to reveal the original Roman facade.
