magnificent work of engineering and architecture holds the world's
tallest church spire at a height of 161m.
Work began on this cathedral in 1377, and was carried on in
intervals until 1545. It took another 300 years to get
finished, when work began once again in 1844 and the cathedral was
finally completed in 1890. Today this giant Gothic church
measures an astounding 464 ft long and is 159 feet wide. The
massive interior has the capacity to hold 30,000 people.
