This listing is for one print, of the Bourges Cathedral in the central region of France.
The stately Bourges Cathedral was built between the 12th-13th centuries. When the north tower collapsed in the early years of the 1500s, money was raised by allowing people to eat butter during Lent, as long as they donated to the tower fund! The tower subsequently came to be known as the Butter Tower.
