Saint Michael’s Church – 2


It is the oldest holy building in the city,
replacing the castle chapel of the Counts of Luxembourg
placed on the same site in 987.
In the course of the centuries
the church was destroyed several times,
but always reconstructed.
Its present appearance dates back to 1688,
although it was restored in the 60’s and the 80’s.

  6. I'm sure Luna is glad to have you home. I know I am. Living in New England, it's hard for me to imagine such old buildings. They have great grace and dignity and your interior and exterior shots of them help me to get a sense of the long stretch of history.

  9. A spendid church to begin the year with.
    Dear Léia, I wish you and Cézar all the best for this new year.
    I have been away for a long time from the blogosphere. That's the reason why I didn't comment or post either.
    No need to wish you happiness, I watch on your pictures of you both, you already get it. That's wonderful !

  10. I'm always moved when I see such old buildings that could survive through years and centuries.. We also have a lot of San Michael's statues around here.
    I'd like to hear the music of this old altar. It must be great in such a place..
