Today we went to the European Parliament for a tour. It is a huge building. The chamber holds 1465 people in total (including visitors).

Next we went to the European Court of Human Rights. We were welcomed by Ann Power who is the judge with regard to Ireland since 2008. We got to see the Grand Chamber that has 17 judges. She was very nice and explained all about the Court.

Then, after lunch we went visited the Cathedral in Strasbourg which is called Notre Dame, like in Paris.

Afterwards, we took a tour of Strasbourg on the river Ill. We saw the old and new parts of the city. We had earphones which we used to listen to an explanation of the tour.

Finally we shopping for souvenirs! We had a great day. 🙂
