Cathédrale (cathedral)

A cathedral is the church where an évêque (bishop), the head of an évêché (diocese) resides.
It is also the name of the bishop's chair, which is actually located inside the cathedral itself.
In the picture the cathedral Saint-Lazare in Autun; underneath it the Bishop's seat (Cathedra) of the Bishop of Autun.
