The center main portal of Cologne cathedral is the only one, which has not a special name. It is 9.3 metres wide and, including its gable, more than 28 metres high. The theme of the centre portal is the age before redemption. The trumeau figure in the main portal is Mary, the link between the Old and New Testaments.
