L'abbaye de Wesminster

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

C'est peut-être l'un des plus beaux exemplaires de l'architecture gothique anglaise. Fondée par le roi Edouard le Confesseur en 1065, sur le même terrain occupée par une église 500 ans auparavant, elle fut construite presque totalement au XIIIe siècle sous le règne du roi Henry III.

This is perhaps one of the finest examples of English Gothic architecture.

Founded by King Edward the Confessor in 1065, on the same lot occupied by a church 500 years ago, it was built almost entirely in the thirteenth century during the reign of King Henry III.
