The Cathedral of Notre Dame de Amiens, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is the largest roman catholic gothic cathedral in France by volume and was built between 1220 and 1270 by master craftsmen of the medieval period.
Eventually, it is also considered the cathedral with the tallest completed nave in France.
At that time, the builders aimed to outdo each other by building higher lighter beams, by increasing the amount of light entering the nave, and all this while building an everlasting piece of architectural brilliance.
The cathedral is enthralling and takes you into its history with each step.
Over 700 years later, and the building is still standing, almost unfractured.
The view from the towers to the city is breathtaking
