One of the best views of the old town can be observed from the Moyen-Pont Bridge, which spans the Moselle River. The construction of the Temple Neuf was completed in 1904, and it rests on an island in the center of the river. Two stone bridges, with multiple arches, connect either side of the island to the mainland. The temple is an example of Rhenish Romanesque Revival architecture.
This city and region of France is renowned for its buildings constructed from Jaumont stone; this is a warm golden hued limestone. The Metz Cathedral is not only is made up of this yellow mineral, but it lays claim to the widest stretching, stained glass windows in the world. This church has gone through a series of metamorphoses throughout the years. In 1040 the cathedral was initially completed in a Romanesque style. Then, in 1186 a small chapel was built into its western end, and again in 1520 the entire church was redone in a Gothic motif. The last major exterior reconstruction was finished in 1903 where the Metz Cathedral was furnished with a neo-Gothic entrance.
