I'm surprised no one has posted this one yet. It is, afterall, the tallest church in the world!

Masterpiece. It's amazing how such grand, flawless sturctures were able to be built so many centuries ago.

The spire was only completed in the 19th century though.

The majority of the pictures I just posted aren't from the west front though.
Cheers! Read on its wiki-page and from the information there it was quite hard to actually determine what are restorations and what are additions.

1377. Construction halted in 1543 and resumed in 1817. It was finally completed in 1890.

It's not medieval at all, it was built in early 19th century - around 1830's.
But still it looks magnificent

It's nice yes, but there is a separate tread for neo-gothic structures.

I think it would fit better there.

Well it was built on a 600 year old chapel and the interiors are over 400 years old, but I guess you're right

People seem to forget often what an incredible amounts of money went into building those churches. And when construction halted, it was often a matter of money. On the other hand, building such a church could really be a economic engine for the region (besides being a tax sponge). In those days the church was in certain ways equal to the state.

The Vatican (though not gothic ) was paid for by selling indulgences all over Europe. A kind of get-out-of-hell-free-passes for rich people. All that money handling and powerplay was a serious force in triggering the Protestant Reformation.

So whoever thinks that faith moves mountains, think about what money can do!
