efe-epaNaumberg, Germany

A cathedral in eastern Germany has just made it onto UNESCO's list of world heritage sites, leading an epa-efe photojournalist to on Friday turn his lens onto a building whose existence dates back to 1028.

The Cathedral of Naumberg in the town of the same name is "an outstanding testimony to medieval art and architecture," according to UNESCO, which pointed out that the place of worship was an example of the transition from Romanesque to Gothic.

"The west choir, dating to the first half of the 13th century reflects changes in religious practice and the appearance of science and nature in the figurative arts," UNESCO said on its site.

The organization announced the cathedral's inclusion on its list on Sunday, along with Göbekli Tepe in Turkey, Pimachiowin Ali in Canada and Chiribiquete National Park in Colombia.
