Anniversary – #11


The church of St. Stephan in Mainz – founded by Bishop Willigis in 990, the present structure dating back to the 12th century – was heavily damaged by bombing 62 years ago today.

It was rebuilt in the late 1960s and houses a unique collection of 9 stained glass windows by Marc Chagall.

And I love the door handles, one polished by the hands of thousands of visitors.
