Auch Cathedral Basilica (French: Basilique Cathédrale Sainte-Marie d'Auch) is a Roman Catholic church located in the town of Auch in the Midi-Pyrénées, France. It is a national monument, and is the seat of the Archbishopric of Auch. Under the Concordat of 1801, the ecclesiastical office was dissolved and annexed to the Diocese of Agen, but reestablished in 1822. The cathedral contains a suite of 18 Renaissance stained glass windows by Arnaud de Moles.
