Centrally situated, the famous York Minster is visible from much of the city. It has three towers and is the fifth church to be built on this particular site. It's the largest Gothic Cathedral in Northern Europe and dates right back to medieval times, although excavations have unearthed Norman, Roman and Viking beginnings. See for yourself the wonderful 14th and 15th century stained glass, including the famous Rose Window . Admission to the main body of the Minster is free, although contributions to the York Minister Fund and Friends of York Minister are welcome.
The York Minster is the largest gothic cathedral in Northern Europe. The construction of the Minster began in 1220, with the building going for another 250 years. Imposing as all other cathedrals from this type, it has its originality, and does not resemble its famous counterpart in London (Westminister). Check out the stained glass during the day, but be sure to return at night.
I traveled to England to meet some friends from online. I was taken to York to see the wonderful sights. This church is simply WOW, amazing. The details and art work is wonderful and I just love the tour you can take under the church. It has been built up over time and each area has imformation and arifacts to show and tell. If you ever travel to York, this is one place that you will just stand there and say WOW. It is really one of the most beautiful places I have ever had the honor of seeing. When I have the chance to return York is surely on my list and the York Minster is top of my list.
Wow. Well what can i say? The york minster should be the 8th wonder of the world! The scenes inside are simply breathtaking and the stained glass windowns are magnificent! You really should visit this place...
