Although it is not technically a Cathedral... a suburban Detroit Gothic church named Kirk In The Hills was
built in the rolling hills of the wealthy suburb of Bloomfield Hills. It was originally a mansion (center
portion) that was donated and incorporated into the the Presbyterian church complex, that was built in
1958. It sits on a pastoral 40 acre site, and has a lake behind it. Based on Scotland's Melrose Abbey, it
is a very beautiful setting from all angles.

Ravenna , Italy

I love the Byzantine church of San Appolinare in Classe, Ravenna, for its sense of space and simplicity and fresco artworks and mosaics:

The Cathedral Sveti Marko, island Korčula Croatia

It is built in Gothic-Renaissance style, completed in 15th century at the place of other church from 13th century. Cathedral was built by local masters and craftsman of stone masonry, very well known in renaissance and baroque Dubrovnik and Venice.

Most famous among them was stone mason Marko Andrijić who completed cathedral's tower and cupola (1481) as well as elegant ciborium above main altar. Cathedral's facade is decorated with the truly beautiful fluted rose and various relief and statues, while main door - portal is framed by statues of Adam and Eve and figures of lions.
