For me, one of the finest ceilings is in Ely Cathedral, England:

Wonderful ceiling, still resizing the pictures would help appreciating.

Anagni Cathedral (Crypt)

image hosted on flickr


[wiki]The most noteworthy part of the Cathedral is its crypt, which contains the tomb of Saint Magnus of Anagni, the patron saint of Anagni, and Saint Secundina of Anagni. The frescoes covering all the walls and ceiling are some of the best works of Romanesque/Byzantine art in Italy, and form a single iconographic scheme which includes natural philosophy, saints, the Apocalypse, and the Old Testament Ark of the Covenant. The unrestored Cosmati floor is in excellent condition.[/wiki]

Didn't realise the photos of Ely were so large! I've added some smaller ones.

But often the complex ones happen to be the greatest. There's so much work put in to them. The details are amazing to study and at the same time the ceiling as a whole and the symmetry of it makes it just as awe-inspiring.

i think this is the most intricate ceiling among the Baroque Churches of the Philippines. a UNESCO World Heritage site.

San Agustin Church completed in 1607
