Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, Lund, Skåne, Sweden


As you walk through "old town" Lund, coming up from Market Square, this is the first glimpse you get of this almost perfectly preserved Romanesque Cathedral. lund101.jpg (22142 bytes)

Looking down the nave toward the rear of the church from the very highly elevated choir and main altar level.   Tour guides in this Cathedral (open from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.) are very helpful, always eager to practice their english, excited to entertain Premonstratensian tourists, and very informed about the early history of the Cathedral.  Most are history or cultural majors from the University of Lund.  lund07.jpg (22928 bytes)
