Notre-Dame de Strasbourg

In the heart of the Strasbourg city centre stands the Cathédral Notre-Dame de Strasbourg, considered as one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture (even though it has got some Romanesque elements as well). It was built between 1015 and 1439. Its 142 metres tall tower was the tallest structure in the world from 1647 to 1874. Today it is still the sixth-tallest church in the world and the tallest one built entirely in the Middle Ages.

Taking a photo of the cathedral and squeezing most of it into one composition is not an easy task. It required standing with my back in a corner of the square. In the square (Place du Château) you can also see a colourful art installation called La Prairie dichroïque.
