    This is one my favorites so far in the series. Thank you, Melisa.

      Agreed, best yet.

    • Joy

      My feelings also. It’s like a comment on how enduring the church is.

    great photo, particularly interesting is that bell tower wasn’t there at the time, It was added with the original plans a few years ago. I can’t tell how the Belo mansion fits it, looks like another house is there that’s now gone in between belo and the Cathedral.

    interesting in addition because that bell tower was added much later, built according to original plans.
