Continuing Cardarian's (Dolores) visit to Liverpool, showing some more of the places we visited during her visit to Liverpool.
As Dolores is a librarian so she was eager to see our city's spectacular Central Library, which won an award as last's year's best new building of the 2013 for UK.
I'm adding this post to Annie's Friday Smile as I'm remembering the happy, fun time we all had together.
You'll see even more to brighten your weekend over at Annie's (Wipso) place.
At the top of the library there's an open area providing views over the city, just outside the atrium.
The main body of the building is linked and flows into the renovated Picton Reading Rooms, a splendid domed Victorian circular library.
We visited the Anglican cathedral which is, very aptly, at one end of Hope Street and at the other end of Hope Street stands the Roman Catholic Cathedral. We enjoyed an excellent lunch in the Anglican and I must say that both cathedrals serve excellent food.
You can see the building in the distance from the piazza ofthe Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King.
The Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King
I didn't take photos inside the Anglican Cathedral as, with respect, I didn't feel comfortable taking any in such a place. The Metropolitan Cathedral was so quiet and the few people there were tourists snapping away, so I took the opportunity to discretely join in.
The colours of the lantern change with every angle as you move around.
This is the large panel made by their embroidery workshop to celebrate the visit of Pope John Paul ll's visit to Liverpool in 1982
I love to see the exceptional artwork in each of the side chapels
This glistening mosaic was rescued from another church at the last minute just in time to save it from demolition.
Geometric crosses on the bell tower.
As a final smile here's my shock view when we stopped at traffic lights as we drove home one day!
