BELGIUM - Notre-Dame Cathedral in Tournai

"The Cathedral of Notre-Dame in Tournai was built in the first half of the 12th century. It is especially distinguished by a Romanesque nave of extraordinary dimensions, a wealth of sculpture on its capitals and a transept topped by five towers, all precursors of the Gothic style. The choir, rebuilt in the 13th century, is in the pure Gothic style." -

Postcard 1

How sweet of Fred of France who thought of me during his trip to Belgium...
And sent this card when he returned to France.
Together with this postcard is a brochure about Our Lady's Cathedral of Tournai...
Thank you so much, Fred!
While reading the brochure, I felt like I already visited this House of prayer and a place of pilgrimage to the Virgin Mary...
