You realize that this is a reconstruction of the original baroque church that was destroyed during WW2? Therefore it's not just a new building, everything was reconstructed from old document and photos from before the war, also old stone pieces were incorporated into the reconstruction.

Hello to everyone! I will give this little support to this thread. The pictures are from Metropolitan Cathedral of San Salvador, El Salvador; it has the biggest dome in Central America.

I'm pretty sure that this dome is very simple compared with some of the others that all of you have already posted before, but I believe that is interesting to see pictures from other latitudes. So I present, proudly, the dome of the Cathedral of San Salvador, city where I live. Enjoy!
















P.D. I do not own this pictures.

2) Sanctuary of Vicoforte di Mondový, Piemonte, Italia

(Apart from kidding, this is my n.2 favourite dome after Pantheon in Rome)

Largest elliptic dome in the world. (large 37,15 x 24,90)

The decoration in fresco of the 6,032 square metres of the cupola’s vault was completed in 1752 by Mattia Bortoloni and Felice Biella, and the sanctuary finally attained its current form in 1884, when the campanili were built along with the three fašades.

No one post put the Firenze's Duomo! I thought that it was one of the most famous domed buildings around the world, I was wrong?

The State House in Annapolis, MD, is the world's largest wooden dome and dates from the late 1700s.



The State House is Providence, RI, is the second largest self-supporting marble dome in the world after that at the Vatican.



San Fransisco's City Hall has a graceful dome.



St. Paul, MN, has an impressive cathedral dome.
