Notre-Dame Cathedral, Strasbourg: 132 reviews and 385 photos
The Cathedral Notre-Dame is built in pink sandstone from the nearby Vosges mountains. It was began to build in 1015 in a Romanesque style on the place where there had been a Temple dedicated to Hercules. After it burnt, it was built again, beginning in 1176 in the new Gothic style. In 1284, Erwin of Steinbach began to build the front of the Cathedral but he died in 1318, just after the Apostle Gallery, on top of the Great rosace, was built. After his death, only the northern tower will be built to full height. In 1439, Jean Hültz, from Cologne adds the famous spire on top, that gives a very special look to the Cathedral.
I hope to be able to come back on a sunny day and shoot better photos!
