    My current favorite is Gaudi's La Sagrada Familia, in Barcelona Spain. (When they finish it ... whenever that may be!) I saw it this past summer during my jaunt through Europe.

    I also like how the design of the skyscraper in the back is inspired by the church. It's a cool trend that's been going on in MontrÃ[​IMG]al since the 80s:
