Wait, wait, don't run off mad, as my dad used to say. (-:
I got my post to work by removing a special character (í) from within a link.related discussion: "Der Text konnte nicht formatiert werden"
At least, I think that was it.
Anyway, hopefully that excursus won't deter anyone else from posting about cathedrals, if that would help get us going on a fall Monday. Best cathedral, worst cathedral, best bargain, best Geheimtipp bzw. underpublicized cathedral ...?
I should perhaps have mentioned Speyer, which I liked very much on a rather hasty visit years ago. I've never been to Ulm, but it will be on my list for another time. I'm not really into baroque churches, but if anyone has more Gothic or Romanesque tips, I'm all ears.
Or modern -- I still remember Coventry, and a church whose name I've forgotten in Berlin, very near the ruins of another church in the middle of a street, what was that?
More traditionally, York Minster and Durham are both worth a visit, and of course Ely, with I think a really pretty chapter house, or was that York? Salisbury and Winchester I recall as more touristy and predictable (forget the Round Table), but still nice.
What are the highest parts of a cathedral you can visit? We have great pictures of my parents on the roof of, IIRC, Milan, that was simply fabulous -- I was very envious. I myself once climbed the 700-something steps in St. Paul's Cathedral, London, but I was much younger and less flabby. \-:
Assisi is another one I would love to see -- its colors all seemed so warm and earth-toned, like St. Francis.
Where else ought to be on our cathedral radar? Isn't there a French one that still depends on its flying buttresses just to keep it standing?
I didn't check back to see if you had already posted on this earth-shattering culinary topic,related discussion: firmly packed brown sugar
but if not, I think there was a question (possibly from a previous year) about Australian recipe usage. (-:
