Photographer's Note

This is a night view of the city of Liege with two emblematic buildings separated by exactly 1000 years of history : the Saint Paul Cathedral was founded in the Xth century by the first prince-bishop Notger (+1008) while Calatrava's railway station in the background is still under construction.
Saint Paul is one of the seven collegial churches founded during the Xth century and was established as cathedral in 1802 after the liegeois revolution (triggered by the french revolution!). The four typical little bell towers were added at that time in the style of the Notre Dame et Saint Lambert gothic cathedral that had been thrown down by the revolution.
