This beats all those ornate, over-the-top churches where people pray to the statues and the murals and the windows!!

The Abbey of Santa Maria di Rovegnano in Chiaravalle is a Cistercian monastic complex in Milan metro area. There is also an ancient borgo that has developed round the abbey that was founded in 1135. It's one of the first examples of Gothic architecture in Italy, although maintaining some late Romanesque influences.

In 1135 Cistercian monks from Moiremont and another group of Cistercians, coming from Cîteaux, reached Milan in early 1135, as guests of the Benedictines of Sant'Ambrogio, Milan, to support the cause of Pope Innocent II against Antipope Anacletus II. The papal dispute was resolved in favour of the former, thanks to the intervention of the Cistercian founder Bernard of Clairvaux. He decided to reclaim the marshy area south of Milan and found a new abbey there; he left a group of friars in the city with the task of collecting money for the construction.

After a series of temporary buildings had been constructed, the construction of the permanent church was begun around 1150-1160; it was consecrated on 2 May 1221. Works continued in the 13th century with the first cloister, south of the church, and, in the 14th century, the crossing tower and the refectory. In 1412 a small chapel was built next to the southern transept. Today it is used as the sacristy. In 1442 the abbey was placed in commendam. In 1490 Cardinal Ascanio Sforza (the brother of Ludovico il Moro, duke of Milan) commissioned Bramante and Giovanni Antonio Amadeo to construct the Chiostro Grande ("large cloister") and the chapterhouse.

During the Renaissance, numerous painters and artists worked in the abbey: to this period belong for example Bernardino Luini's works. In the years 1614 to 1616 the brothers Giovanni Battista and Giovanni Mauro della Rovere, called "i Fiammenghini", decorated the interior walls of the church with the frescoes which are still visible today. When the Napoleonic Cisalpine Republic was founded in 1798, the monastery was partly demolished. What remained included the church, part of the small cloister, the refectory and the entrance buildings. In 1861 Bramante's cloister was destroyed to make way for the construction of the Milan-Pavia-Genoa railway. The abbey remained a private property until 1894, while the Cistercians returned in 1952. The dome’s frescoes were restored in the years 1970-1972; further works of restoration have been in progress since 2004.

Sacred Heart Cathedral, Lahore, Pakistan.
It's not as beautiful as european churches, but still pretty amazing to me (I'm a bit biased :P )














(Sorry for the low-res pictures, there aren't that many pictures of this)
