York's best known building is the Minster, seat of the archibishop of York, and home to the best collection of stained glass windows in England, not to mention countless other important relics. The minster looks equally great from a distance and up close. Its colour reminded me of colleges in Oxford, while the Gothic architecture is reminiscent of the great cathedrals in France, such as Notre Dame in Paris. There has been a church on the site since 627, though it was from a later church in 1080 that the present church emerged.
