Travel Photo of the Day (Feb. 4)

The York Minster, located in York, England, is a Gothic cathedral and is one of the biggest ones in Northern Europe.  On the site, in 627 the first wooden church was erected.  In the 12th century, the Gothic style became the rage and the archbishop, Walter de Gray, initiated the building of a Gothic structure in 1220.

      I love Gothic buildings. I can’t wait to go to Prague. Everyone tells me that is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. And it has so much history!

  11. Were you able to go inside? The cathedrals here in Spain are absolutely breathtaking inside! However, it does make you wonder how with all that gold and jewels it’s adorned with, if that money it’s worth couldn’t go to the economy! Hmmm…

    • TBM says:

      We didn’t go inside. A service was in progress and we had three young and energetic children with us at the time. I didn’t want to interrupt the peace and quiet 🙂
