Eleven, Cathedral St. Ursen, Solothurn

The Canton of Solothurn was the eleventh to become part of the Swiss Confederation. There are eleven churches and chapels, as well as eleven historical fountains and eleven towers in the town. The St. Ursus catholic cathedral has eleven altars and eleven bells, whilst the stairs in front of the cathedral have levels between every eleven steps. There are eleven tourists in this photo (OK: plus a tour guide) and we visited in November 2010: the eleventh month of the year.
