Notre Dame Cathedral, Tournai, Belgium
All of interiors of Notre Dame Cathedral, Tournai were not accessible because of ongoing repairs, yet the portions we saw looked stunning. There is a slightly boring museum inside which we gained entry with two euros, it does have the most precious artifacts in gold and silver; boring because no photography is allowed.
The tall walls are filled with glass, on bright day the altar must be definitely flooded with light. Those pillars and arches are made of city’s blue stone I read, but they didn’t look blue to me. The organ and rose window in the west facade.
The beautiful rose window in the picture below. It was installed there in 19th century replacing the one from 15th century. Virgin Mary in the centre and Prophets in compartments around it, I felt compelled to zoom in to this marvelous stain glass work. You can click to enlarge and see.
