A reprise from 04 July 2008, honoring the church's namesake
East Atkinos: The Longest Church
Settlers from Atkinos Town often sail east into this area. A group of parishioners from St. Paul's Church in Atkinos decided to settle together and form a new town. The central feature of the town is a long, narrow church, St. Paul's Cathedral of the Preformed Assumption. We will see how this church dominates the town which surrounds it.
A wide view of the town, to give some perspective. New Atkinos and points north are to the left.
The entrance to the cathedral faces St. Paul's Square, a favorite gathering spot for townsfolk.
The massive building also hosts a seminary and a theological library.
The rear of the church empties into Stell Plaza. A cut stone promenade connects the two ecclesiastic plazas with a pair of scenic walkways.
The dominating feature of the church, and the town, is the massive bell tower. One of the tallest structures ever built in Schulmania; it can be seen from miles away in every direction.
Let's take some closer in views of the distinctive tower.
