St Corona

A few days ago I encountered this link in one of my daily email feeds:

This caused me to reflect back on my visit to #Aachen at the end of August 2017. It was a Sunday, and I managed to squeeze into the cathedral for Mass. I remember that inside the nave under the dome was much smaller than my perception from the exterior. Built by Charlemagne, it was my first visit to a German cathedral. he organ was magnificent and the attendees fairly devout. Once the service was over, we all had to leave.


After a delicious lunch, I returned and was able to tour an view the illustrations inside the dome, great stained glass windows, the gold reliquary. Once outside, I took pictures of the exterior, including many trees which surrounded the building.

And here's a link to the pictures I shared from that trip for my day in Aachen (also known in French as Aix-la-Chapelle) - more about town pictures:
