Europe is dotted with great churches (note that I am using the term “great church” not “cathedral.” These terms are not synonyms. Not all great churches are cathedrals and not all cathedrals are great churches. A great church is one of particular size and splendor). These monuments to religious pride are often museums in their own right as well as places to pray.
