Saint-Gervais-St.-Protais Cathedral , French Heritage monument to Senlis

Built with the whole beginning of the year 1150, Our-Lady-of-Senlis is consacree on June 16, 1191. Its relatively modest dimensions (18 m under keystone) are compensated by an impressive Gothic frontage blazing which confers much majesty to him. The Gothic style initial east alters to the XIII E century: the bell-tower of the south is prolonged elegant arrow then has two stages, and the interior prospect is broken thanks to a transept leaving the nave shorter than the chorus. In 1504, a fire causes by the lightning devastates the frame and involves the collapse of the vaults, except for those of the first span. Its rebuilding will be the occasion to raise (of 6 m) the high parts of the cathedral, to double the low dimensions of the nave then to avoid the side walls of a splendid blazing decoration. The Revolution, fatal has so many religious monuments, will save the cathedral of Senlis partly. Admittedly, furniture disappears, but the destruction is limited to the heads of statue-columns of the Western gate (remplacees in the middle of the XIX E century). The building will then entirely be restores to the XX E century. To note: the Western gate decorates with the first representation sculptee of the crowning of the Virgin.
