Beautiful! But five centuries to complete? Wow.

Wonderful photograph! I love the way the wrought iron cross is centered in the balcony arches ... And the ribs of the vaulted ceiling below it seem to go on forever!

Twelfth century. Amazing. And beautiful. 12th century is so hard to imagine. And then i think that times have changed, but people haven't. I love wonderful buildings built by ancestors we'll never know...
