    Looks like fucking Disneyland when driving around the beltway at night.

    Not necessarily the greatest, but I really like going to the Lateran. When I've been in Rome, I've found myself going there at odd hours two or three times during the trip, or when I was passing by.

    I like the statuary.

    The doors from the old senate house are pretty nifty too.

    Art and architecture are two great legacies of religion (particularly Christianity). Cathedrals are just awe-inspiring. Post your favorites.

    I've always been fond of Winchester. It's quite sad that so many of the English cathedrals are a shadow of their former selves. We can thank the Protestants for ruining much of the beauty within these structures.

    I thought if asked this question I would choose something old from Europe until last month I went to Rio de Janerio and saw Catedral De Sao Sebastio. It is stunning. Only downside it was paid for by a petrol company. It's one of the few modern buildings that has made me catch my breathe. I wanted to stay for an hour or two just to watch the changing light.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    The stained glass in the National Cathedral in Washington is some of the most beautiful I've seen.

    Plus, it has a Darth Vader gargoyle.

    Without a doubt one of the world's ugliest buildings.
