3 Most Popular Churches in the World

If you are interested in church and church designs then you are in the right spot. We have compiled a list of some of the most popular churches in the world. With only three churches, this list is not all-inclusive but touches on some of the more popular churches. The focus on this review will be the physical appearance of the church and not the number of people who attend religious service. Even if you do not follow the Christian faith, these churches really are a sight to behold.

Sagrada Familia

Is situated in Barcelona, it was built in the 1800s but up until now the construction of the church was never completed. This church is a UNESCO world heritage site and should be added to your list of places to visit in Europe.

Saint Basil’s Cathedral

Located in Moscow Russia, the design of this church is quite distinct. It was built in the middle of the 16th century by order of Ivan the Terrible. This church is also registered as a UNESCO world heritage site and should be viewed at least once in your lifetime.

Notre Dame de Paris

Was the heart of France up until the Industrial Revolution? This cathedral has some of the most impressive towers in all of the world. An interesting fact about this cathedral is it took nearly one hundred years to complete!

We have touched on some of the most popular churches in the world and while these churches are situated in Europe, you will notice that their designs followed the European settlers who migrated to North America. A significant number of the churches in North America borrow their designs from these popular churches in Europe.
