Bourges Centre Historique

Sundays are perfect for city sightseeing...

View from South
Bourges Cathedral.

A huge place.

On a quiet Sunday afternoon!

Impressive & peaceful.

Top of the north tower.

Only Sime & Hugo were brave enough to climb the 396 steps...

To the top!

Stunning views.

In every direction.

They could see for miles...

Happy Chappies.

The Holy Sepulchre in the crypt, erected in 1520.

Part of the Rood Screen, erected in 1250 & defaced by protestants in 1562 during a siege of the city.

The outer gallery of the crypt, which has 2 windows.

Closed area of the crypt - looks creepy!

Exit of crypt.

Unearthly creatures!

Intricate detail of the northern entrance.

Gargoyles were quite menacing.

Southern entrance.

Historic quarter.

Lots of half-timbered buildings.

Very upmarket during the day, but rapping vampires seem to come out at night!

Clair de Lune.

Tomorrow we travel to the outskirts of Lille for our final night.

Bonne Nuit!

Kay :)
