How Grand!

My kind of shot If you had aimed your camera just a little lower, you might have had a dazzling shot of the floor's tile pattern.

I'll bet there is a big echo in there.

Randy is spot on. Do they organise concerts in there? It's beautiful, simple and should have wonderful acoustics.

I really like it. Simplicity is more appealing to me than overdecorated.

Very nice VP.

This is so different that churches here. But I find it quite majestic. Quite old, too, I'd guess.

Beautiful nave, perfectly captured!

Dina said...

Why is it so bare, I wonder.
