Absolutely classics, been to Glasgow and had that very big city feel with a diversity of grand buildings.

Great thread thanks for the great pictures. I wonder how much a lot of these structures would cost of built today.

Cost in terms of money? A lot, but they would be still more expensive in terms of time. Many of those buildings required decades of hyper-detailed fine and artistical work...
Some other example this time from Palermo, church of Ges¨ or Casa Professa...

Wow amazing sculptural set! Perfectly conserved! How ancient are those mid-relief? I know persepolis was famous for those sculptures...

This one I publish now it's renaissance, so it's pretty later

It is the Tempio dell'Incoronata in Lodi, Lombardy, Italy

The sixth century B.C.

Of course Persepolis is famous for its huge columns and column heads but the walls of the palaces of Persepolis is full of these carved stone reliefs:

We have to believe the churches have been built better than the mosques.

iran's churches allways facinate me

its like a summary of many of the styles that were available in the region at the time

i think our current day cities need to learn and use the styles of these masterpieces
