Temple Church, London. Built by the Knights Templar in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. The monument thing in the foreground is modern.

I think KŲlner Dom is the most typical gothic building.

This is the fromer cathedral of St Nicholas in Nicosia Cyprus, built during the crusader era. Converted into a mosque by the Turks... The facade of Lyons put me in mind of it.

I'm pretty sure the people of Nuremberg would find it pretty offensive if you called their structures examples of Bavarian gothic architecture. It's Franconian.

It was in Bavaria when I went. Maybe it had been moved.

Gothic architecture will never cease to amaze me. Those fan vaults are spectacular.

Culturally Nuremberg has never been part of Bavaria, but Franconia, a region with its own distinctive history and identity. That's why when we refer to architecture of Nuremberg, which is part of its culture and heritage, it's Franconian. Also, during the Middle Ages Franconia was an independent state (it became part of Bavaria in 1806).
