Gostei da segunda foto, da arquitetura e dos arcos, da luz, da amplidão, deste corredor e do teto.

I always love how you use the light, JM, and how it adds to the drama of your captures. Beautiful old cathedral! Have a great day -- tomorrow!

Beautiful Gothic architecture, love the volumes! The statue seem to be "enlighten"...

Hard to imagine anything that old is still standing. I wonder if the architects and builders thought at the time they were building for the centuries ahead?

Looks in good shape, too! Is that a photographer friend I see?

Hard to imagine how they built these magnificent Gothic structures in medieval times. Beautiful captures.
