England: Canterbury Cathedral

Canterbury Cathedral is the most important church in England and is it the seat of the Archbishop of the Anglican Church. Founded in the 6th century, it brought Christianity to England. It was rebuilt after the fire in the 11th century into a towering Gothic structure both outside and inside. It’s lavish to say the least with every detail taken to insane level – there are sculptures everywhere, tombs all around inside, a massive crypt below, ornate ceilings and walls, and incredible windows. It also is humongous, and makes you wonder how such a structure was built in the medieval times. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
