IRELAND – Cathedrals Lady Chapel reopened also for culture

From an aesthetic point of view, it demonstrated how careful restoration can illuminate the architecture and craftsmanship that makes the cathedral one of the most beautiful in this part of Europe.”The Lady Chapel will be part of the tour from now and will also be available for cultural events. The chapel followed the style of churches across northern Europe in the 13th and 14th centuries, being built behind the cathedrals high altar and dedicated to the Virgin Mary.
