Island Brač, Dalmatia

The Parish church of St. Peter stands on the side of an old chapel which was restored in 1773 in a Baroque architectural style. At that time it also received a new aisle and bell tower. It was extended in 1887. The bell tower was restored recently.

Leeds Minster - the church is home to some fabulous stained glass, and the mood of the church changes dramatically depending on light. It has one of the finest peals of bells in the country too. Due to the amount of wood in the building the acoustic is unusually dry for a building of its size.

Of outside aspect this cathedral looks like a fortress. In fact it is not a fate, it effectively held this role.
