La Cathédrale de Sens

Wednesday we traveled to Sens. This quaint town is home to the beautiful Cathédrale de Sens. One of the earliest Gothic churches it was begun in 1140 and completed in the 16th century. It is is undergoing some major exterior renovation at this time. We also toured the Musées de Sens. Photos from that and our walk around town to follow!

More red here, but maybe you will be surprised; I prefer - and really like - the b&w photo, vertical of course! :-)

I allowed myself to publish another b&w vertical photo by you on my post today! :-)
