York Minster

"York Minster is the largest medieval gothic cathedral in Northern Europe. Not all cathedrals are minsters: not all minsters are cathedrals - but York Minster is both.
A cathedral is the mother church of a diocese. It is where the bishop has his cathedra or "seat", which is only found in a cathedral. York Minster is the cathedral church of the Diocese of York. A "mynster" was the Anglo-Saxon name for a missionary church - a church built as a new centre for Christian worship. The first Minster in York was built as such a centre in 627 A.D."
O lugar é um verdadeiro deslumbre. Espero ter conseguido compartilhar um pouco da sua maravilha nestas imagens.
