Two constructions preceded the current Palace of Princes-bishops which dominates the place(square) Saint-Lambert, the center of the trading life of Liège where rose formerly the Cathedral Saint-Lambert. A first palace, integrated(joined) into the fortifications, is built at about the year thousand by prince-bishop Notger; he(it) disappears in a fire in 1185. The palace is reconstructed under Raoul de Zähringen. This second building, strongly abimé after the bag of 1468 by the Burgundians, undergoes the same fate(spell) in 1505.
Rising on the episcopal throne of Liège in 1505, prince-bishop Érard of The Marck, finds a palace in ruin. He(it) confides(entrusts) the construction of a quite new Palace to master(teacher) of work Arnold van Mulken in 1526. The construction site is finished at the end of the xvie century.
The main facade South East side completely redone after its fire in 1734 in style Louis XIV-Régence supervised by the Brussels architect Jean-André Anneessens, the son(sons,thread) of François Anneessens.
In 1849, a new western wing is built

An unusual crop (but an original one) for a building with superb architecture which adds interest in the picture along with the details you managed to retain in this picture are praiseworthy, John!

The light and exposure are well done, and colors are natural.
Well kept contrasts and clarity with god management of exposure too.
Nice work!

Thanks for sharing.

The portrait style and tight crop works well with this building, the sharpness to detail of the stomework makes for a grand image. tfs
