Determined to finish what I started!
No, seriously! I need to finish sharing my visit to Jerez. The Cathedral is magnificent. Originally a Collegiate Church, it wasn’t granted cathedral status until 1980, by the grace of Pope John Paul II, though the church itself dates back to the Christian conquest of Jerez, on 9th October, 1264. Briefly the sky was blue, but I was eager to see inside.
Just inside the mighty portal, I was surprised to find a model of an industrious looking Jerez, and close by, not so surprisingly, an altar to John Paul.
There was a wealth of beauty wherever you looked, the cathedral extending theatrically in a sequence of rooms behind the main altar.
My only disappointment was climbing the tower. I never can resist, but the spiral staircase led only to a grilled window, with a limited view.
Slightly more than my allotted Six Words, I agree, but I do hope Debbie finds this Joyful. Wishing you all a blessed and happy Easter. And, heaven’s above, Becky’s March Square is finally over! Let’s eat cake!
