Cathedral of St Bartholomew

Cathedral of St Bartholomew

Frankfurt Germany

The old and the new evident in close proximity throughout the Frankfurt reconstructed after the war. Even the Cathedral of St Bartholomew, seen here in the background, is itself largely a product of ongoing reconstruction. This is quite inline with its history which has seen successive re-constructions beginning from well before Charlemagne convened his great synod here in AD 794.
