Notes on the Geography of The Western United States: Santa Fe: Photo 15

world pictures The Western United States: Santa Fe

Here's the St. Francis Cathedral, built 1869-86 in a French Romanesque style. Why French Romanesque? First of all, because the Santa Fe or pueblo style hadn't been invented. Second, because the man in charge was the first archbishop of Santa Fe, and oddly enough he was French. Jean Baptiste Lamy's relations with the local clergy were poor. Money was tight. Lamy got the style he wanted, but the spires were never completed.
