Norm’s Thursday Doors : January 12 2017


Mainz Cathedral

Mainz Cathedral

These are the very impressive doors of the Romanesque Cathedral in Mainz, Germany.    This building is over 1000 years old, and was built around the year 990, in the 10th century.   It’s hard to cast my mind back that far, and hard to believe that this building is still standing and being used as a Cathedral, as originally intended.    The doors are very tall, made of bronze, and date back to the 11th century.

Here are some views of the outside of the Cathedral, there was some repair work and scaffolding going on when we visited, but it is a very large and interesting building, as you can see.

    Great shots Joan. It must be a humbling experience to stand in front of a place with that much history to it. Just wonderful 🙂

    Impressive buildings with an enormous set of doors. It is interesting to be somewhere where many of the buildings are older than our country.
