Full name of the cathedral is 'The Cathedral Church of Christ, Blessed Mary the Virgin and St. Cuthbert of Durham'. Founded in 1093, the cathedral is a UNESCO World Hritage Site and a fine example of Norman architecture. 

這座教堂全名為『達勒姆基督、聖母與聖Cuthbert座堂』。建立於1093年,這座諾曼式教堂現已為世界文化遺產。

Even though I've seen quite a few cathedrals already, each one of them still manage to take my breath away. Though similiar in many ways, each one is different in its own unique way. 

累積至今雖然已經見過不少教堂,但它們還是有辦法讓我看地目不轉睛。雖然基本架構都一樣,但細節部分還是使的每一座都有獨特的風格以及視覺效果。

It doesn't take very long to see the inside of the cathedral, but it's definitely worth taking a look, as with all cathedrals of this scale. 

參觀內部不會花上太多時間,但絕對值得參訪。尤其像這麼大間的教堂,不進去看一下,真的有點可惜。

天仙念:我有點忘記是因為內部不能拍照,還是因為我不好意思拍。不過內部真的挺有趣的,真的!
