Located in the heart of Strasbourg, the Strasbourg Cathedral, completed in 263 years, is one of the most important historical buildings in the Middle Ages and a famous Gothic church in Europe. The church is entirely made of pink sandstone from the Vosges Mountains. On the top of the front, on one side is a 142-meter-high minaret, but on the other side there is only one platform. It should have been a symmetrical spire. It was not built because of the limited financial resources at that time. Now it has become its characteristic. The Fortress Cathedral is also very famous. Ascend to the top of the tower, the city's beautiful scenery and magnificent forests and mountains are unobstructed.
There is an 11-meter-high astronomical clock in the church. Every 15 minutes, there are children, young people, young people and old people who represent the four stages of life. But every hour, there is a god of death. The timekeeping time is accurate, and by the time the clock is heard at 12:30, there will be a lot of characters coming out of the field, bringing a compelling, lively and humorous scene.
As the most French-speaking French church, the Gothic building of the Virgin Cathedral, covered with dark pink ornately carved Vosges sandstone, is the most shocking first Gothic church. Passing through the crowded alleys, looking up at the church with his head up, it is not an exaggeration to describe the church in Hugos words, "Gathering a huge and slim in an amazing building."
The buildings around the church should not be underestimated. They are very popular. For example, the black and white wooden rib house in the upper left corner of the picture is said to be the oldest pharmacy in France. The first floor is made entirely of stone, and the branches and snakes are carved on the corridor. The upper half-timbered building began in 1567, and the age of the sandstone column is still clearly identifiable.
The medieval builders continue to decorate the exterior contours of the church with elongated stone poles.
The cathedral is a 142-meter-high spire, and there is only one platform on the other side. It should have been a symmetrical spire. It was not built because of the limited financial resources at that time. Now it has become its characteristic. On top of the tower, it overlooks the whole of Strasbourg.
Leaving the cathedral, our tour of Strasbourg is coming to an end, the sunset is beginning to go west, and we walk to a corner of the street. There is a huge architectural model of the city of Strasbourg. Go to the tall building, that is the Cathedral of Our Lady that we just left.
Strasbourg Cathedral, France: This most novel and most German Gothic church is best described in four beautiful words: stone lace. Goethe also made a sigh: such as an extraordinary, arched tree of God rising from the ground.
From my superficial perspective, it is more beautiful than Cologne Cathedral. This is a church that allows you to watch it for a long time. It takes a lot of time to carefully appreciate every detail, but it is so delicate that you can't move your eyes. On the square below the church, there are various small shops selling souvenirs. This is the home of the church, which sells beautiful hand-painted ones, which makes people love it.
This church was built in the late 11th century, the altar is Roman style, and the nave is Gothic. The church is an asymmetrical structure with only one spire. It is said that only one tower was built because of the shortage of funds at the time of construction. Later, when the later generations wanted to build one more symmetry, they found that the design of the church could not carry another spire, so they Had to continue to add more decorations to the outer wall of the church, the church became the look of today, with a complex and beautiful exterior wall decoration.
