Welcome! You don't have to be an architect, many of the people we have over here are enthusiasts.
If I remember correctly once you reach 10 posts you'll be able to share pictures.
Cheers! The Leon cathedral is iconic.

So pretty. The Croatian examples give a largely Romanesque vibe, but I rather love that.
I also love how Germany for instance is overflown with Romanesque architecture. It's like the Medieval before the Medieval. It feels like Christianity at its peak yet in a more ancient way, compared to the Gothic.

Beverley Minster | England | UNITED KINGDOM

A fire in 1188 seriously damaged the original Minster and the town.
Money was collected for the work and reconstruction began at the east end soon after the fire.


I. Filled with light, overwhelmingly tall and spacious,
and speaking to the increasing skills of the stonecarvers,
this new work was radically different from the old Saxon and Norman structure it replaced.
II. It was the product of the novel structural systems and artistic development that together define the Gothic style,
originating in France and brought to England in the late 12th century.

Those who have seen the mural of the Golden Knights, say that the images don't do justice to the place.
It's something that needs to be experienced up close in person.

Just thought of something: Aren't these just Gothic windows adapted to the round forms of the Renaissance? Two lesser arches coming together and forming a circle where they intersect is something you see in Medieval Architecture alot but never appears in antiquity, so I guess this is a remnant/invention of Gothic architecture that found a place in the Classical tradition? Does anyone know the story about this?

Btw, the picture is of the Église Notre-Dame de Saint-Étienne in France. It was finished in 1669.
