  GREY ST. CANICE'S CATHEDRAL....
by eden_teuling
 
 

walking here really gives you the feeling that nothing here has changed for decades on end....

It is a quiet town and I wasn't so very much impressed by the town because of the fact that most buildings were built with GREY STONE......and I do so love colour!

In the photograph: the St. CANICE'S CATHEDRAL with it strange, round, chimneylike tower!

WEATHER PERMITTING the tower may be climbed!!

This outstanding, mediaeval cathedral is a site of christian worship since the mid 6th Century. With its round tower (from the 9th Century) it forms the heart of Kilkenny, giving the city its name.

NOTE: accessible for wheelchairs, there are toilets and a lovely well stocked gift shop (where I bought a nice calender for coming year!)

How wonderful the DOM in SPEYER, Germany, so sweet and friendly the pinkish stone they used.....for whom is interested: see my SPEYER page....

But I walked the streets of KILKENNY, admired the churches and was amazed seeing a church with this round tower: it makes me think of A FACTORY CHIMNEY!!

Address: KILKENNY CO KILKENNY IRELAND
