Sepia Saturday 66 - Rosslyn Chapel (da Vinci code)

Once again I'm not "theming" for this week's Sepia Saturday, but thought this vintage postcard was worthy of a post. It's of Rosslyn Chapel, Midlothian, Scotland. A beautiful looking chapel, with no need for embellishment, it was however made even more well known through Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code book and film. Some interesting information here separating some of the fact from fiction.

  1. I'm not a Dan Brown fan and the Da Vinci code did not make an impression on me.
    This card is great and thanks for the useful link.

  7. Oh, it is beautiful! I would love to see it in person, to be there and feel the grandness and hugeness of it! I always marvel at the beauty and structure of old cathedrals like these and wonder how the builders ever managed without the modern conveniences we have now!

  10. I think I'm one of the few people who did not read the davinci code. After seeing this church i might try the film just to see the church in color. It looks so gorgeous.

    I wish they built buildings like this today.

  13. I love visiting cathedrals, this one is very ornate. I am another who isn't a Dan Brown fan so don't know what he had written about it.
