Churches and Cathedrals of your Country

What are some of your country's most impressive churches, cathedrals, mosques, basilicas, etc.?

Canada is not known for its churches, but we have some very impressive ones. These are the best that I've seen in person:


Notre Dame Basilica, Montreal

Try to keep your photos to a minimum, no more than 5 each person please, and also don't forget to source your images.

Very nice photos guys, but let's try and keep them to a minimum as per the first post. It's hard to load a whole batch of photos like this on the page for some people.

IMO, the Basilica at St. Louis is the most beautiful church in all of the United States. The mosaic cycle took around 80 years to complete, I think, and is certainly one of the most gorgeous modern mosaic cycles in the world.
