Details of the Berliner Dom archway. Berlin, Germany. June 8th, 2018. #berlindeutschland #berlingermany #berlinphotography #berlin #berlinerdom #cathedralarchitecture #europeancapitals
Exeter Cathedral has the longest uninterrupted medieval vaulted ceiling in the world, at about 96 m in length. The Cathedral itself is fascinating: a delightful synthesis of cathedrals from multiple different ages; ranging from the Norman towers of c.1112-60 to Decorated Gothic majority of the structure of c.1320-1400. (Or there about). The art historian Nikolaus Pevsner describes it as: ‘but the crowning glory of Devon’s wealth of medieval churches’. #decorativegothic #gothicarchitecture #architecture #architecturelover #architecturephotography #fanvaultedceiling #ribvaultedceiling #vaultedceiling #longestvaultedceiling #exeter #swisbest #devon #lovedevon #exetercathedral #cathedralarchitecture @exetercathedral #monumentalengineering #normanarchitecture #normancathedral #visitexeter
Ruins in Antigua
Vanbrugh's fine gate piers to St Oswald's were commissioned around 1720 for Oulton Park and moved to Malpas in 1773. The urns echo ones Vanbrugh used to decorate the parapet to a Loggia in the gardens at Kings Weston, Bristol around the same time. #churcharchitecture #vanbrugh #cathedralarchitecture #gate #gates #urn #wroughtiron #wroughtirongate #visitcheshire #malpas #stoswolds #baroque #winterlight
In Chester Cathedral you’ll find something extremely rare: The reconstructed 14th century shrine of Saint Werburgh. Destroyed during the reformation, some parts of it were found during the 1873 restoration of the cathedral and Sir Reginald Bloomfield reassembled the shrine in 1888. It’s surrounded by gothic niches and beautiful, gilded, figures (now headless) stand around the top. It’s so rare to find a shrine in a British church or cathedral because the iconoclasts we’re usually quite thorough in their destruction of them. I can only imagine what it must have felt like to approach the shrine in order to kneel and place one’s head into one of the stone niche’s on the sides... The jewels and gems draped all around the saint’s relics must have sparked in the candlelight while devout monks quietly shuffled through the shafts of incense-filled sunlight streaming into the Lady Chapel. Werburgh’s brother, Coenred, was king of Mercia. She was a nun most of he life, dying in 700. Her brother decided to move her remains in 708. When the tomb was opened, her body was found to be miraculously intact. This preservation was taken as a sign of divine favour. Coenred abdicated a year later to become a monk in Rome, and at about the same time (according to a Benedictine hagiographer) Werburgh appeared in a vision and restored a dead goose to life! Pilgrims to her shrine wore a badge depicting a basket of geese.
I’m a sucker for a stonework facade ... see how the rear of the cathedral is a more humble brickwork 👉🏻👉🏽👉🏿 ... these were taken just before Christmas and the night sky was a real navy blue ... these are not filtered 💙 ____________________________________________ #stalbans #stalbanscathedral #stalbanslife #stonework #stone #stonewall #facade #facadelovers #facades #straightfacade #cathedral #cathedralarchitecture #architecture #architecturephotography #urbanscape #citylife #church #townplanning #buildingsurveying #history #historic #building #buildingconservation #historicbuildings #historicbuildingconservation #churcharchitecture #nightsky #bluesky

La Sainte Chapelle Inspired by the 13th c. Holy Chapel in Paris, it was completed in 1897. The stained glass windows are the work of Edouard Didron. Behind the altar, standing on a pedestal, you may see the statue of Notre-Dame-de-la-Treille, to which the cathedral owes its name. The 13th c. original one was housed in the Collegiate Church of Saint Peter and associated with miraculous healings in the 13th, 16th and 17th centuries. An object of devotion since the 13th c., the statue fell into oblivion after the destruction of the Collegiate Church during the French Revolution. The veneration of the statue was restored in the mid-19th c. and then it was decided to build a Basilica to house it. Actually the statue we can see today is a copy. The original one is said to have been stolen in 1959. #notredamedelatreille #cathedral #cathédrale #cathedralarchitecture #statue #art #dom #holychapel #lillemaville #hautsdefrance #ilovelille #france #lille

The Baptistery of the Cathedral of Parma, photographed during our visit a few days ago ⠀
St Albans. 02 | In Hatfield, the town where the University of Hertfordshire is, there's really not much to do. There's a shopping centre, a handful of restaurants and a Whetherspoons, that's pretty much it. But, the surrounding towns are super cute if you get the chance to visit. My girlfriend and I caught the bus to St Albans before Christmas to check out the market and get out of dodge for the day. This is a photo of St Albans Cathedral, where I belive my graduation will be held | #stalbanscathedral #cathedralinterior #thatlibbygirlphotography

One of my favorite memories of Ely cathedral was looking at the building from the tower and the roof over the lantern._#elycathedral #cathedralarchitecture #cathedraltower #thetowerview #cambridgecathedral #lanterntower

Another gem, for its peacefulness and the reprieve it provided from the heat of Madrid in the summer. The crypt was beautiful too although I didn’t feel right photographing it. * * * * * * #almuneda #catedral #cathedral #cathedralarchitecture #architecturelovers #churcharchitecture #architecturephotography #ceilingdesign #ceiling #ceilingart #lookup #madrid #spain #visitmadrid #madridarchitecture
A site for sore eyes ❤ On the right is Canterbury's War Horse, built to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.
@blacktomatotravel hooked us up with a little alone time in the magnificent Jerónimos Monastery, before it was open to the public. A truly magical experience!
