    Notre Dame of Luxembourg

    notre dame by night

    In 1613 Jesuits decided to build here a church but they shouldn't know that one day it will become Cathedral to the Blessed Virgin and all people will call it "Notre Dame". It is built in late Gothis style mixed with rennaisance. Especially the vitrages and towers are great. However, it was renovated becaue on of the tower was burnt some tens of years. In 18th CT century there was adopted the picture of the Lady Comforter of the Afflicted who made miracles and she was the patron saint of the city and the country. And finally in 19th CT Pope Pius XI dedicated the cathedral to Virgin Mary. Later there was a little enlargement and nowadays there are several places to see inside such as the grave of duke, cathedral itself and also downstairs.

    Cathedral to the Blessed Virgin
    It was established in 1613 but at that time it was just a small church but in eighteenth century it was renovated and extended. You can see the late Gothic style structure and no doubt it is very impressive. It was after that became cathedral.

    A church and a pub?

    Notre Dame

    Here is another shot from the inside of a Luxembourg church and a tip on Luxembourg City's nightlife. There are a ton of pubs and cafes in this city of fun, plenty of places to enjoy the evening having a drink, singing songs, and making friends. Some of the most popular are the Traders Café on 9 Rue Bisserwée, and Yesterdays on 6 Rue de la Loge.

    In the church

    You've got to go into some of the lovely churches in the city center. They are really different from others I've seen in Europe. They may have been more modern, maybe more simplistic, nonetheless, they were nice. In the main square Place d’Armes, you will find the wonderful Cathedrale Notre-Dame. Continue in the direction of the train station and you will come across Rue du Marche aux Herbes and the Grand Ducal Palace, home to the Grand Ducal Family. Finally, one other nice church is the Citadelle du St-Esprit which is located at the Plateau du St Esprit. This place offers outstanding views of the valleys and landscapes of the city.

    Tulips and a church

    There are some really fine looking churches throughout Luxembourg, and especially the ones right around the center of the Luxembourg's old town. The cows, flowers, and architecture is just great! Luxembourg is great isn't it? I think it is, the clean streets, neatly trimmed hedges, bushes, and trees, it's all very nice.

    See the Cathedral of Our Lady Luxembourg. The oldest part of the present Cathedral has its origins in the church of the former Jesuit college. In 1594 Jesuits from Belgian province of their order settled in Lux, which was then part of the Spanish Netherlands (Yeah my country before was bigger! ;-) Wow!) The plan of church was drawn up by Brother Jean du Blocq. The artistic decoration of the interior was gradually completed over a period of several decades. (picture with me-right & my friend Sabina-left).
    See paintings as 'The Comforter of the Afflicted, the main portal in early Baroque style, the organ gallery from the transept (at the end of the picture), the Birth of Christ (stained-glass panel)

    It was a wet day when I made a short trip to the capital city. The Cathédrale de Notre-Dame was visible from a long way of - sadly it was shut by the time I got there!

    The west door

    NOTRE DAME CATHEDRAL OF LUXEMBOURG

    The west portal is called the Maria Portal and was built in the 1930s. The Maria statue reminds me of Dutch architectural architecture during that same period. Reminiscent of the art deco period.

    NOTRE DAME CATHEDRAL OF LUXEMBOURG

    A church like this changes during the centuries. The pillars with their Moorish influence, the arches under the organ distinctly baroque. You can look at them a long time and not see everything!

    NOORDWIJK BINNEN GARDEN FAIR

    Glass stained windows simply belong in a church like this. Biblical images in colourful glass. Beautiful.

    NOTRE DAME CATHEDRAL OF LUXEMBOURG

    I have no information about this organ. Strangely enough it isn't even mentioned in the little guide that I bought about this church. Pity!
