Bourges Cathedral from France (UNESCO 635)















Beautiful view to the Bourges Cathedral (XII-XIII cent). The cathedral is one of the great masterpieces of Gothic art and is admired for its proportions and the unity of its design. The tympanum, sculptures and stained-glass windows are particularly striking. Apart from the beauty of the architecture, it attests to the power of Christianity in medieval France [source: UNESCO]
