It's a gorgeous picture! I guess I'm not "everyone" since I missed that one. When I was at the Le Puy Cathedral for the pilgrim blessing, we had to enter (and I think exit) through a side door.
Ahhhh I wonder why that was. I first saw this archway mid-afternoon when I was 'resting' after climbing up the steep lava-paved path that led to this entrance. But I think when I returned early morning for the pilgrim Mass and blessing, you could use any of several doors.
I'm not sure about the doors. I just remember getting to the cathedral for the pilgrim blessing and having trouble finding my way in. Although I have to admit I was in the cathedral the day before, when all the doors were open, and I just didn't get the shot.Of course I am also probably the only pilgrim since the invention of photography who somehow missed getting a photo of the full Santiago Cathedral. I've got lots of pictures of people milling around in front of it and a few little cathedral detail shots, but much to my embarrassment I never actually took that all-important photo.I guess I'll just have to go back!
Anna-Marie, sounds like a good enough excuse to me! I am already plotting my next long walks- just need to save some cash first!
