When my mom was visiting in October,
we took her to Trier, Germany for a day trip.
J & I had been before, three years earlier,
and loved the town,
so we wanted to share that with my mom.
Trier is the oldest city in Germany
It was built in 16 B.C.
It's rich in culture and history and is a
beautiful little town.
They have a fantastic walkplatz area full of
shops and eateries, as well as
the two most visited historic attractions:
The Porta Nigra & The Cathedral of Trier.
The Cathedral of Trier is the oldest cathedral in Germany.
It has been built and destroyed many times, but
it hasnt lost it's beauty.
The outside of this cathedral is gorgeous and
one of my favorite cathedrals in Europe.
It looks like a fairy tale castle.
|A shroud that Jesus supposedly wore is kept here in a vault|
|The details and work never fail to amaze me|
|A better view|
|The look of this is very European, very Roman.|
I love it!
|Graves in the courtyard|
The Porta Nigra is Germany's oldest defensive structure,
built in 180.
I am so amazed and impressed that it has
survived this long and still looks great!

Happy Sunday Everyone!
