Most Unique and Beautiful Churches in The World

A simple cave can hold as much spiritual and historical relevance as impressive cathedrals and the most famous churches in the world.

The churches on this list are all ones I have found to be particularly noteworthy for their beauty, creativity, and uniqueness.

St Peter’s Basilica Vatican City

It is the burial site of St. Peter, the head of the twelve Apostles of Jesus, the first Bishop of Antioch, and later the first Bishop of Rome, rendering him the first Pope.

Sagrada Familia, Barcelona, Spain

Not just an icon of Barcelona but one of the world’s most famous churches. Sagrada Familia is as famous for being unfinished as it is for its striking design.

Church of the Assumption, Lake Bled, Slovenia

The Church of the Assumption sits on a tiny island in the middle of Lake Bled and is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful churches in the world.

Hallgrímskirkja Church Reykjavik, Iceland

It is designed to represent the ubiquitous basalt columns throughout the country, a glorious creation of volcanoes and glaciers.

Ostrog Monastery Montenegro

Carved into the vertical cliff face, it is a tradition for pilgrims to make the 3km journey barefoot from the lower monastery to the top of the mountain to pray in front of the body of Saint Basil.

Santuario Nuestra Señora del Carmen Bogota, Colombia

It is unique because the entire church is constructed in alternating rows of red and white stone, and curlicue designs are painted on the outside doors.
