Whichever religion has the largest following has got to win, even the poll choices are limited to those only. So I dont see the meaning of this poll.

Santa Pietro, although Hagia Sofia was the first true great Church, St Peters in my mind is incredible- the highwater mark for the renaissance (which i prefer to the byzantine art). It was 'almost' too grand when i visited it. Also with the sistine chapel and large square out front its an amazing sight.
I thought Notre Dame was extremely overrated when i saw it in person. Don't really know why its so famous, i thought St Denis was much nicer.
St Basil would be a third on my list, but if i visited it it could very easily be 1st. It is one of my favs buildings in the world.

I still think Chatres and Salisbury Cathedrals should have got into the list...oh well

Out of this bunch Hagia Sophia is the best (St Peters a close second).

The Dom of Cologne impressed me very much. It is damn huge, you don't know what you're seeing as it rises up the closer you get to it. The view from the towers is impressive to. Köln gets my vote.
