The original Romanesque cathedral, begun in 1020, was destroyed by fire in 1194.  After the fire the north and south towers, the south steeple, the west portal and the crypt remained.  It was rebuilt in 25 years with minimal change after 1250. The resulting Gothic cathedral is often referred to as the greatest cathedral in Europe.  The taller of the two spires was built in the 16th century.  The 176 stained glass windows were created between 1210 and 1240.
