Wells Cathedral
Wells Cathedral
"Begun between 1183 and 1192, the construction of Wells Cathedral was completed in 1260 with the nave, the north porch and the west front. It has strongly marked English characteristics, such as the stress on horizontal lines. From this point of view, the west front is typical: it unfolds impressively in width, punctuated by six buttresses which are obscured in the luxurious sculpture."
