rom the rooftops it was possible to overview the construction of the cathedral, as from ground level, the vast latticework of wooden beams surrounding it blocked out any view of the stone walls behind them. But from here, up high, it was finally possible to see the grandeur of what was being built, and it was clear how far the construction had progressed.
Next to the cathedral, a vast spire was built, adorned with intricate gargoyles,
sculpted by an army of stonemasons. Eventually, a large wooden crane would slowly
lift the spire to its place, placed on top of the highest tower.
