The Notre Dame Cathedral of Luxembourg

notre dame cathedral
This magnificent Gothic structure was built circa 1620. The cathedral is the scene of the Octave of Our Lady of Luxembourg, an annual ceremony on the fifth Sunday following Easter, when thousands of pilgrims arrive to pray for protection to the miraculous statue of the Holy Virgin.

My first day in the city of Luxembourg, the Notre Dame Cathedral was closed as they prepared the altar for the annual pilgrimage. The next day visitors were allowed to see the adornments. A lovely and spiritual place; Catholicism is the state religion of Luxembourg.
