Rose window


19 September 1974, Switzerland
Rose window of Lausanne Cathedral
design: A. Yersin

The construction of Lausanne cathedral, which this rose window belongs to, started in 1170. It took 65 years to complete. Three master masons must have worked really hard to complete this in 65 years, though.

The capital decorations in the interior columns are very similar to the one in this stamp.
