Silent Sunday…… Off to Church

Aalborg,-Budolfi-Cathedral

Aalborg, Denmark…. and Budolfi Cathedral.

The snow white facade and it domed topped tower is one of the most distinctive, and in many ways dramatic, Cathedrals I have visited.   Very unique.

Built in the highest point of the Old Town in Aalborg, its distinctive outline also features on the Cities Crested Emblem.

As to its name.  Budolfi is named after the English Benedictine Monk, Saint Bodolfus, said to be to protector of travellers, very appropriate for this old and important harbour,  a prosperous centre of Jutland’s trading history.

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
