Visit to Strasbourg

     Last week my husband, Alain and I  took a little trip to France to visit my father. We used the opportunity to visit the city of Strasbourg that has a cathedral which once could boast of being the tallest building in the world (from 1647-1874).

    A couple days would never be enough to see everything there is to see in this beautiful city with its classic Alsatian architecture.

Beautiful details adorn the whole of the cathedral
