    圣保罗大教堂

    圣保罗大教堂
    另辟蹊径的伦敦历史之旅

    你现在应该是面朝大教堂。在你和教堂中间的空地,有可能会有街头艺人的表演。你可以暂停一下,欣赏一会儿这些表演。我小时候就常来这个地方看各种千奇百怪的表演,非常有意思!

    你可以瞻仰一会儿这个巨大的教堂。它是建筑设计师英尼哥琼斯在完成整个广场的设计后,画龙点睛之作。他那个时候的圣保罗教堂和现在是一个样子,但是完工后,教会的官员在验收时,却发现了一个问题,内部装饰的朝向全都反了。

    官员们告诉琼斯,室内的神坛应该在教堂的东边。如果你看看你的地图就会发现,东边是在你的左边,也就是说神坛就在你的前面。而你的前面应该是教堂的入口才对。你一进门就会撞见做仪式的神父,这显然是不合理的。所以他们是在后来进行了调整。

    如果你仔细看,你在柱子后面的教堂墙上会看到一个黑色的长方形。很多人都以为那是一扇门,但是那只是一个纪念铭牌,用来纪念那些为教堂的维护和修缮做出贡献的人。你现在的位置其实是在教堂的背面,是没有门进去的,入口在另外一侧。我很多在伦敦生活了多年的朋友也都以为那个长方形是一扇门。

    现在请转身,背对教堂,面对那个大市场。你应该能在市场的阳台上方看到“Covent Garden Market考文特花园市场”和金色的“Punch and Judy”的字样。现在朝前走,朝apple market苹果农贸市场走,我们要穿过那个市场。
    在17世纪晚期,伦敦城内出现了一些混乱,富商权贵们纷纷搬去了伦敦的西边,留下了演员和所谓的“橘子女孩”英文是orange girls,还继续生活在这一片。

    你可以猜一猜他们是谁。答案待会儿揭晓。
