Strasbourg is in the east of France near the border with Germany. It has the second highest cathedral in France (146 meters high) and, along with the center of town, is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage site since 1988.
The construction of the cathedral began in 1015 and was finished more than three centuries later, in 1439. The famous French writer Victor Hugo called it a “marvel of gigantic and delicate”. Outside, one can admire its unique bell tower, the portals, the numerous statues, and its color which is unusual in France. Inside, the light from the 12 meter rose window colors the cathedral. The crypt, the pillar of angels and the astronomic clock reveal their secrets to more than 3 million visitors each year, making it the most visited cathedral after Notre Dame de Paris.
You can make a stop at Strasbourg Cathedral, symbol of religious heritage in France, during your Catholic pilgrimage in France.
