Monday Window: Nantes Cathedral

Some readers might have heard about the fire that caused severe damage over the weekend to the cathedral in the city of Nantes. I’ve posted a couple of images of the stained glass windows in this enormous edifice in the past and here is another, rather poignant one.

As well as the arched window, this image shows the cathedral’s massive baroque organ, dating back about 400 years. According to reports, the organ was almost entirely destroyed by fire, although fortunatelly the cathedral as a whole did not suffer anything like the damage that befell Notre Dame in Paris.

  1. Wonderful photo and memory. I hope that in time the organ, and the rest of the cathedral, will be restored to this glory. Thank you for sharing.
