Photo of Amiens Cathedral

Photo of Amiens Cathedral in France

The Cathedral Basilica of Our Lady of Amiens is the tallest cathedral in France, and the largest measured by interior volume. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and was built between 1220 and 1270. In this photo, you can see the patterns left by planes as they crossed the skies above it. Although the cathedral now has a white and off-white stone colour, the figures under the entrance arches were originally colourfully painted. The cathedral is now sometimes illuminated to show what it would have looked like when it was painted, but unfortunately I didn't get to see this on my trip.
