Churches as a rule leave me cold, but this one is just so totally overwhelmingly HUGE, that you have got to have a look at it. It will give you an insight as to the amount of money and riches that were poured into these type of buildings in those times. The number of mountains that were leveled; the number of trees cut down and the number of workers involved to supply materials and labour for this immense structure is difficult to imagine.
There were four pulpits; suggesting that four priests preached alternatively at a service. There were possibly 60 hand carved seats for the hierarchy to sit in at a service. there were several balconies, as in a theatre, for royalty to sit in, possibly to be away from the peasants below ?.
One wonders if the place was EVER full of people and the mind boggles at what a spectacle it would have been to witness if it was. One thing is for sure; we doubt if it has been full of late!.
