The Beautiful Cathedral in Passau

This is the St. Stephan's Cathedral, called as "Dom St. Stephan" in German located in Passau, a city in Bavaria, Germany. This is so far one of the most beautiful cathedral I visited in this country. It has a baroque architecture the seat of the Catholic Bishop of Passau.

It has the largest church organ outside of United States. It is also the largest cathedral organ in the world.

The image below was taken during my third visit to this city last summer 2010. This is such and amazing work of art! St. Stephan's Cathedral is truly stunning!

The cathedral's overall plan was made by Carlo Lurago, its interior decoration by Giovanni Battista Carlone, and its frescos by Carpoforo Tencalla.

The Cathedral in Bamberg, Germany

The Bamberg Cathedral of St. Peter and St. George (Bamberger Dom St. Peter und St. Georg) is known to be one of the famous architectural monuments in Germany. It is also the most famous landmark of the city of Bamberg, Bavaria, Germany. Emperor Henry II is the founder of the cathedral in 1004. It has a late Romanesque design with four imposing towers.

The cathedral is about 94 m long, 28 m broad, 26 m high, and the four towers are each about 81 m high. This was taken during our visit last Oct. 9, 2010.

I totally forgot the name of the church below. Anyway, here is the image of the inside part of the church which I took during our visit last month. You can see my friend walking inside the church.

Watching the Sky in Westminster Abbey, London, England

What a such dark sky in London as we visited Westminster Abbey. This Gothic church is also known as The Collegiate Church of St Peter at Westminster.

Here is an image I took during my visit last 2008.
HISTORY

According to a tradition first reported by Sulcard in about 1080, the Abbey was first founded in the time of Mellitus (d. 624), Bishop of London, on the present site, then known as Thorn Ey (Thorn Island); based on a late "tradition" that a fisherman called "Aldrich" on the River Thames saw a vision of Saint Peter near the site. This seems to be quoted to justify the gifts of salmon from Thames fishermen that the Abbey received in later years. The proven origins are that in the 960s or early 970s, Saint Dunstan, assisted by King Edgar, installed a community of Benedictine monks here. A stone abbey was built around 1045–1050 by King Edward the Confessor as part of his palace there and was consecrated on 28 December 1065, only a week before the Confessor's death and subsequent funeral and burial. It was the site of the last coronation prior to the Norman conquest of England, that of his successor Harold II. From 1245 it was rebuilt by Henry III who had selected the site for his burial. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westminster_Abbey

Church in Neumarkt , Bavaria and the Fountain

Good morning folks! It seems that the sky is crying again. No chance to work today in our garden. I better share this picture taken in Neumarkt in the Upper Palatinate of Bavaria. If I am not mistaken this is the St. Johannes or St. John's Church. You can see a fountain near this church. It is also located near the City Hall. I have been to this city for more than a hundred times already. I wish you all a wonderful day!

Frauenkirche, Church of Our Lady in Nuremberg, Bavaria, Germany

We always pass this Church every time we visit Nuremberg Castle in Nuremberg, Bavaria, Germany. Sad to say, I was still not able to go inside of this church. I promise that the next time we visit here, I will for sure take a look and lit a candle inside this historical church. Here is a little information I have from Wikipedia about this church.

The Frauenkirche (in English, "Church of Our Lady") is a church in Nuremberg, Germany. It stands on the eastern side of the main market. An example of brick Gothic architecture, it was built on the initiative of Charles IV, Holy Roman Emperor between 1352 and 1362. The church contains many sculptures, some of them heavily restored. Numerous works of art from the Middle Ages are kept in the church, such as the so-called Tucher Altar (c. 1440, originally the high altar of the Augustinian church of St. Vitus), and two monuments by Adam Kraft (c. 1498).

WW: The Gößweinstein or Goessweinstein Basilica

We happened to pass-by Gößweinstein today during our trip tpo Bayreuth. It is a municipality in the district of Forchheim in Bavaria in Germany. The place is very interesting. It is just small town but a lot of tourists visit this place because of the Pilgrimage Church which is now considered to be a Basilica or Cathedral. It has also a very beautiful surrounding. Gößweinstein is written in English as Goessweinstein. I am sharing a photo of the altar of this Cathedral. Below is also a little information about this Pilgrimage Church.

Feel free to click the picture to enlarge this very beautiful Church.
Pilgrimage church of the Holy Trinity, 1730–1739 built during the reign of Fürstbischof Friedrich Carl von Schönborn according to plans by Balthasar Neumann, who also supervised the construction. Franciscan padre Prof. Dr. Luchesius Spätling applied for the denomination as Basilica minor. The church was elevated to the papal Basilica minor in 1948 by Pope Pius XII.
