Cathédrale de Strasbourg is one of the places of this world that I’m particularly attached to.
It acts as my symbol for Strasbourg and it is the place where I like to return again and again.
Over the years I took many photos of it; as a tourist in 2007, then as resident of Alsace in 2012, and now as resident of Moselle.
Some numbers: it is the sixth tallest church in the world, the highest structure built entirely in the Middle Ages and the second highest cathedral in France.
Here is a detail of the gothic façade, next to a typical Alsatian building.
You may ask why it has only one tower; they couldn’t afford the second one.
One of the most beautiful and most mysterious views of the cathedral. Just like the main railway-station of Strasbourg, you can find here the same alien contrast between several types of buildings, as if they come from different worlds…
I opened a new photo album for Alsace. There you can find many more images, as I’m not uploading them all on my blog:
