Artist's Description

This is a classic shot of a cathedral, although it was harder to take then I expected. It is very dynamic inside holding a lot of history, in the walls and floor.

This cathedral has a rich history dating back to the 5th century. An invasion of the Normans in the 9th century left the cathedral destroyed, rebuilt in the mid-11th century in the Romanesque or Norman style. The consecration was attended by William, Duke of Normandy (later known as the Conqueror), in 1056. A serious fire in 1210 introduced the present Gothic cathedral, completed in 1274. The architect was the same that designed Notre Dame, in Paris. The cathedral was fortunate to have escaped destruction during WWII, unlike the town of Coutances that needed to be completely rebuilt.

Notre Dame de Coutances is a National site of France.
