Over one century later, and the beat goes on... "They" say all the construction should be done within 50 to 80 years! Sheesh, I guess I won't live to see this finished!
Anyway, we opted to climb the dark and narrow spiral staircase up the tower on the Nativity Side, instead of taking the lift. We reached the first 3rd of the 300+ steps of the stairway and this is a view from that level. These are two of the pinnacles rising from the side nave. They are crowned with "fruits" made of brightly colored tiles. Why fruits? Hmm... why not?
