In the center of the city, below the castle, is a park that was full of gorgeous daffodils! Spring flowers but definitely not spring weather...

The beautiful chapel which plays an important role in the end of Dan Brown's "Da Vinci Code" and is now overrun with tourists.

Every inch of the chapel is covered with intricate carvings, beautiful!

Translates as "Wine is strong. The king is stronger. Women are stronger still: but truth conquers all."

nice photos and commentary
I've thoroughly enjoyed your photos and commentary on all things British. They sparked a flood of memories about my own trip to England and Scotland during college. I've been an anglophile ever since! Your postings capture the same sense of wonder and adventure that I enjoyed during my exploration of the British Isles. It's too bad you're not visiting Edinburgh during the festival in August. - J.
