ITT: Churches, mosques, cathedrals, etc. from your country
Nothing better than a gigantic, modern church in the middle of fucking nowhere.
a colonian stylish one
i went to this city on vacation, beautiful city desu
Yeah, it's just a church. Not even a cathedral. Supposedly the site of some epiphany nobody gave a shit about before the thing was built. The tower is there to look big, much like your Jesus. It also has a terrace on the top so you can see the wonderful sights of the flat and uninteresting surroundings.
That's the most mindblowing thing. This thing was built entirely through donations. Makes you wonder where people find the spare money to fund that shit.
najbardziej zastanawia mnie, dlaczego tak wielkie rzeczy buduje się na takich zadupiach
Those are little wooden 'shacks', they are open on one side and for public use.
You can change your clothes in them if you want a little more privacy, there is a bench in it.
Sometimes beach equipment like seats or a parasol are stored in them.
Some people sit in/around them instead of in the middle of the beach.
Interior of the Sainte Chapelle, built by Saint Louis as a reliquary for the Crown of Thorns, bits of the True Cross, and Holy Nails.
Cathedral Saint Alexander Nevsky, the first Orthodox cathedral in France. Also the siege of the Archdiocese of Russian Orthodox churches in Western Europe.
Grande Mosque of Paris, built as thanks to colonial troops after WW1.
Wood Pagoda, a Buddhist temple built for the Colonial Expo of 1931.
we dont have any super impressive cathedrals but we got a humble bahai temple
Strasbourg Cathedral, which was the tallest building for more than 200 years.
Protestant church next to a catholic church with a road called 'purgatory' in the middle.
>Shitton of polish posts ITT
>Not a single mention of temple of providence yet
Fucking file size limit.
Here's a better picture:
There's also a pretty cool astronomical clock inside, pic related
Notre Dame de Paris.
Notre Dame de Paris, Portal of the Last Judgement.
Basilica of Saint Denis, where most of the kings of France and their family were buried and where the Queens were crowned.
Badly violated at the Revolution, now in danger of water infiltration (the royal crypt is always humid as duck nowadays). And the worst is that the town around it is a utter shithole. The humidity in the crypt is probably because of all the ghosts crying, to be honest.
Seriously, if you go there to visit, and it is despite everything still worth the visit, be relatively careful.
i don't know
Sagrada familia 2/2
Because the town around it is an immigrant filled shithole, and is relatively dangerous at night. During the day, at worst you might get pickpocketed.
Just to give an idea of how much of a shithole this town is: it's where the terrorists hid for a few days after the attacks in November.
I guess I'll post a few pictures of the inside.
Tomb of Louis XII and Anne of Brittany.
Tomb of François I and Claude of France.
Find a more comfy church, I dare you.
Oh wait, you literally can't.
Here's another pic for you naysayers.
Yeah. Here's a list of the people buried there:
If you have any interest in French history, you will recognise many names.
Heart of Louis XVII, who died at like 12 in prison.
Epitome of medieval building techniques coming through
another important church in the city
Here's the tomb of Du Guesclin, a Breton noble who rekt the English during the Hundred Years War.
>hey, that's a pretty cool story
>at least it wasn't an English barbarian who killed surrendering nobles for fun
>"His remains were desecrated by French soldiers during the Peninsular War."
Chiesa di San Bernardino alle Ossa (Milan, Italy), initially built in 1269 but vastly reshaped many times until the XVIII century, with a baroque look
it is mainly famous for its "ossuary": a chapel decorated with human bones
There's also Charles Martel. Poor guy. You save France and 1700 years later the people you saved have created an Islamic ghetto near your tomb.
>tfw he will never rise from the dead, expel the invaders again and lead France to glory
Don't even fucking say anything.
