Discovering and photographing the unknown beauty of Europe
When you look at the cathedral of Périgueux, you are struck by its enormous size. I actually had quite some problems photographing the whole building or even a part of it. But what you see outside doesn’t prepare you for what you are about to see inside.
It actually consists of two parts: the “old church” (8th – 9th century) and the 12th church with the cupolas. In the 19th century the cathedral was rebuilt in a neo-Romanesque style, which gave the building an Eastern look. This was not appreciated by the local population.
When we entered the cathedral, we expected a lavishly decorated interior. It wasn’t. You could even say that is almost undecorated. Very impressive are the five domes. If the rest of the day was going to be as beautiful as this cathedral, it would be a very memorable day!
