Strasbourg cathedral. The feeling it gives you while approaching it frontally from what it makes look as a quite narrow street is absolutely incredible:

From the inside, it has to be St Peter's in Rome. The vastness and monumentality of the interiour space is amazing. Heck, in my home town there isn't a public square that wouldn't fit in the interiour of this church!

BAROLO PALACE - BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA



I'd say that one of the most imposing buildings in the southern cone, and specially Buenos Aires is the Barolo Palace, based on the Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri a century ago
