When I was in France–this was one of my favorite Gothic Cathedrals, begun 1134, rebuilt 1194. The doorways of the Chartres Cathedral mirror the walls of the Dome of the Rock. There are approx 176 stain glass windows, three of which are large rose windows, praising the majesty of Christ and depicting stories from the Bible. Like the Buddhist temple and the Islamic Mosque, this Cathedral utilizes its radical departure from the normal architecture that surrounds it to provoke reverence and awe.

A truly beautiful treasure of a city - magical San Francisco, California. I would recommend it to any and everyone. It really is like in the movies ... the people, the architecture, the steep hills, the iconic railcars, the fog, the piers and the sea, the style, the food. I left my heart in San Francisco ♥.
