Shiny example Gothic architecture: Cathedral of Bourges

Insight into the spiritual world of the Middle Ages

Between fertile grain fields lies the old ducal town of Berry in the geographical center of France. Slightly elevated above the plain sits the pretty old town with crooked Tudor-style houses and neoclassical buildings, surrounding one of the most brilliant cathedrals of France. St. Etienne has mighty towers and a high-Gothic western facade, depicting Judgment Day. One can spend hours discovering new details and becoming immersed in the spiritual world of the Middle Ages. Stained glass dating back to the period around 1220 adornes the church. The remains of a Duke lie in the crypt.
