ITALIAN CHAPEL - Made from a Nissen hut building often used as a bomb shelter normally.

Built by Italian prisoners of war in the 1940's on the island of Orkney off of Northern Scotland.

inside:



This I think is a good example of something built without grand expense with normal people, and not some grand project built by dictators or the wealth of a corrupt religious order taking funds from the poor. This was a labour of love, built by a few with what was available and it looks damn good.

My vote goes to Salibury Cathdral in England.



I guess I'm not surprised America has been left out of this debate but there really are some beautiful churches here.

St. Patricks (New York)



Riverside (New York)



Trinity (New York)



National (Washington DC)



Old North Church (Boston)

The Gazi Husrev Bey Complex - Sarajevo - Bosnia and Herzegovina


The Gazi Husrev Bey Complex in Sarajevo is one of the main Ottoman complexes in the Balkans. Built in the first half of the sixteenth century, the complex included a mosque, madrasa, Quranic school, khanqah, soup kitchen, hospice, library, khan, bazaar, public baths and two tombs. Gazi Husrev Bey was an Ottoman governor in Bosnia and contributed greatly to the urban development of Sarajevo with his architectural patronage. Existing waqf documents describe the operations and the maintenance of these sites by an extensive staff, and supported by funds from regional agricultural enterprises.

The mosque was constructed by Ajem Esir Ali, an architect from Tabriz who had been taken prisoner during Ottoman incursions into Persia and became a chief architect in Istanbul. The mosque in Sarajevo is among the successes of this school outside Constantinople. Constructed in cut stone, the mosque is square in plan, surmounted by a central dome that is approximately thirteen meters in diameter and twenty-six meters high. The central prayer hall is flanked by two wings and has a qibla iwan covered by a semi-dome. Five cupolas cover a portico closed on the sides and supported by five marble columns. Three tiers of muqarnas decoration embellish their capitals. The main entrance is set in a niche decorated by seven tiers of muqarnas. Above the entry arch, an inscriptive plaque of tuluth Arabic dates the contruction of the mosque to 1531 (937 A.H.). The portico façade includes a mihrab and four windows.

^ Yes, Notre Dame has a very modest exterior but an absolutely stunning interior.

I hope I dont make myself ridiculous, regarding those stunning examples brought in here allready. But I think when it comes to monestaries, the one in Melk (Austria) is a very nice baroque gem. Especially when you look at the inside. And also the location is nice.






But the highlight is definitely the inside of the church. Also other parts of the monestary, but I dont know if its appropriate to show libraries and marble halls here too, allthough it all served a religious purpose.

I must say when I hear the best religious building, or possibly the best renaissance/medieval age building has to be St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican. The building construction itself was one hellahuge project. On top of that, the treasure the Vatican possesses itself shows how much money they have and have invested into the building. Then there is the Sistine Chapel being part of the complex. The message of the theme is really well drawn. Employees of the construction project included names like Michelangelo, Raphael, Bernini, and so forth. When you take your first step into the Basilica, a rush of blood to the head happens. And I think it is one of the greatest architectural feat man has achieved.
