The Most Bling Cathedral In The World....Probably










A picture post today for a change.  I took these on our trip on Monday to Granada's Cathedral.  Blimey!  The bloke that designed it didn't have his minimalist hat on I can tell you.  His favourite colour was definitely gold.   And some of the ceremonial stuff is bizarre in the least.  Lou and I thought the intricate model of the head of John the Baptist was a particularly nice touch!

  1. Wow, and I thought our local Cathedral (Wells) was blingy! But then it doesn't have the head of John the Baptist (thankfully!).

  4. Crikey, that is over the top. Mind you, St. John's Co cathedral in Malta has actual Caravaggio paintings in it!
