Churches have long been considered among society’s most essential and spectacular structures since they are created and built to hold religious ceremonies and elicit and inspire God’s adoration. This is because religious leaders constructed huge buildings with spires soaring to the heavens and gigantic facades decorated in biblical themes to depict God’s grandeur and strength.
Aesthetics have changed over the decades and millennia, with Romanesque and Gothic architecture giving way to Renaissance and Baroque elements. The gleaming gems and sublime artworks housed within their chapels and naves evolved with the years. These exquisite cathedrals are now some of the most important architectural and historical landmarks in the world, attracting millions of worshippers and tourists each year.
