Petit Futé's opinion on CHRIST CHURCH CATHEDRAL

Plate millesim 2022

The cathedral was originally built in wood by the Danes in 1028. It was then rebuilt in the twelfth century by the Anglo-Norman Count Richard de Clare, better known as Strongbow, which makes it the oldest stone building in Dublin. Despite a restoration in the nineteenth century, it has largely preserved its original novel style. First Celtic and then Catholic, Christ Church Cathedral became Anglican following the English Reform around 1530.

In the south wing is the tomb of Strongbow. All weapons (shield and eroded helmets by time) are set in a singular position: cross legs, left foot completely turned inward. However, the figure represented is probably not that of Strongbow. Next to him is half a glove, almost childish. The legend says that it would be Strongbow's son, cut in two by his father when his bravery was questioned in a battle. The choir, worked in a neo-Gothic style, is sculpted with floral motifs embedded in squares that break with the original austerity of the place. In front, there is a very beautiful chair cut in stone and marble. On the right of the choir is a curious painting: it is a mummy cat and a mummified rat that was found in a pipe pipe around 1860.

Finally, the medieval crypt is surely the nail of the visit: populated with lonely deposits, rugged sculptures and glossy documents…

Crypte
Une cathédrale magnifique, qui renferme un trésor un peu moins commun (car ouvert aux visiteurs) : une crypte ! Cette "pièce" immense transformé en véritable musée, procure au lieu une atmosphère glaçante... à ne pas louper.

Christchurch est une des églises les plus jolies de l'Irlande et la plus belle de Dublin. Le cadre y est magique et l'intérieur très joli. Un vrai petit bijou en centre-ville.

Une église complètement atypique, dès l'extérieur on se rend compte de son côté imposant.
Osez Sortir Du Cadre pour  la liberté financière !

Très beau monument, extérieur comme intérieur cela vaut le coup d'oeil.
Je trouve toujours le prix d'entrée un peu élevé pour ce type de monument (6.5€ me semble-t-il) mais je ne regrette pas la visite.
Le passage dans la crypte (compris dans le billet) est sympa également
A grouper avec le billet de DUBLINIA pour un discount

Belle cathédrale, surtout de l'intérieur avec ces magnifiques carreaux de carrelage très différents. La crypte vaut le coup d'oeil. Dommage que l'extérieur soit en cours de rénovation et que l'entrée soit payante.

A VOIR!!! Édifice impressionnant autant de l'extérieur que de l'intérieur de style gothique et roman.
Vous pouvez combiner la visite avec le musée Dublinia qui explique la vie de Dublin au moyen âge
