Reims Cathedral

By TrevBatWCC    
On our return home from Meiringen in Switzerland, we had an overnight stay in Reims, France. As the traffic had been good we arrived early, about 4:00 p.m., so our coach driver dropped us in the city centre, where we had an hour or so to explore Reims before heading to our hotel on the outskirts of the city.
Notre-Dame de Reims (Our Lady of Rheims) is the Roman Catholic Cathedral of Reims. The original church on this site was the basilica where Clovis was baptized by Saint Remi, bishop of Reims, in 496 AD. A later cathedral was built on the same site, but it burned down in 1211. The present Reims Cathedral was completed by the end of the 13th century, with the west front added in the 14th century based on 13th-century designs. In 1875 the French National Assembly voted to fund extensive repairs of the façade and balustrades. This façade is the finest portion of the building, and one of the most perfect masterpieces of the Middle Ages.

I believe it was knocked about a bit in 1914 as well, when most of the woodwork was destroyed.
Your V1 is stunning, Trev; it shows the façade in perspective, which is most unusual.

Two fabulous shots, Trev - V2 is so impressive, but I think if pushed I'd choose V1 as my fave, for the context.
