Annecy Cathedral (Cathédrale Saint-Pierre d'Annecy) is a Roman Catholic cathedral, and national monument of France, in Annecy.

Contents

It was built at the beginning of the 16th century by Jacques Rossel as a chapel for a Franciscan priory. During the French Revolution the building was used as a temple of the Goddess Reason. It was raised to the status of a cathedral in 1822 when the Diocese of Annecy was created from the Diocese of Chambéry.

The organ of the cathedral was built by Nicolas-Antoine Lété, an organ builder of the French king, in 1840-1842.
