These places of worship - whether still in use or not - are a reminder of the will, effort - and often significant financial resources - put into the construction of churches and chapels. Whether seen as the culmination of a pilgrimage or as a more casual visit, these religious buildings are some of the world's greatest.
Las Lajas Sanctuary, Colombia
Built at a height of 100m inside the canyon of the Guáitara River, this church became a pilgrimage site after the Virgin Mary appeared in front of a woman and her deaf-mute daughter, caught in a violent storm here in the 18th century. The present Gothic-style church was built between 1916 and 1949; a bridge connects it to the opposite side of the canyon.




Borgund Stave Church, Norway
In 1180, the villagers of Borgund, in southern Norway, built a new church. But unlike older churches, which had rotted because their wooden frames came into contact with the cold, snowy ground, this church was to be built on stone foundations. Workmen put up to 2,000 pieces of timber in place; crosses were carved on the inner walls; holy water was sprinkled. The stave church – a medieval wooden Christian church – still stands in Borgund today, although it is no longer used for services, but is preserved as a museum by the Society for the Preservation of Ancient Norwegian Monuments. It is thought to be the best preserved of Norway’s 28 stave churches.





Notre Dame du Haut chapel, France
The building here, near Ronchamp in eastern France, has been known as Notre-Dame du Haut – “our Lady of the Summit” – since the 18th century, when it became a pilgrimage site. In the early 20th century the chapel suffered severe damage, firstly from fire and then from bombing during the 1944 liberation. Le Corbusier, the architect, was convinced to design a new plan for the chapel, and in 1955 the new building was opened. The roof hull, in concrete, is inspired by a crab’s shell, but modern design sits alongside centuries-old elements: the original walls are still here, encased in concrete, while the late 17th century statue of the Virgin Mary has also been preserved.

Viscri Fortified Church, Romania
Not a castle; once a chapel; now a church. This place of worship, Lutheran since the Reformation, was initially a chapel, but was turned into a single-nave church in the 16th century. Seven-metre fortifications have surrounded it since the 12th century. The interior is relatively plain, with dark wood wall panelling, bare pews and a narrow aisle. Viscri, where the church can be found, in Transylvania, forms part of the "Romanian villages with fortified churches" Unesco World Heritage Site. Always small, Viscri is even today home to no more than 500 people.





Gergeti Trinity Church, Georgia
It is possibly the setting, in the green and white Caucasus mountains, below the summit of Mt Kazbegi, that makes Gergeti Trinity Church quite so magnificent. Dating from the 14th century, it has a separate bell tower, and is often used as a navigation point for trekkers, who make a three-hour mountain climb to reach it. While religious services were banned during the Soviet era, it is once again used as a place of worship.

Church of St George, Ethiopia
This is one of 11 monolithic – hewn from a single piece of rock – churches in Lalibela in central Ethiopia. In the 12th century, King Lalibela intended to create a “New Jerusalem”, when Christian pilgrimages to the Middle East were made difficult by the Muslim conquests, and the site has been an important place of worship for Coptic Christians ever since. Biete Ghiorgis - House of St. George – is separated from the other 10 buildings, but is connected via a passageway. Their extraordinary structures – chiselled from living rock – incorporate doors, walkways, columns, catacombs and hermit caves.





Sagrada Familia, Spain
Full name the Basílica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família, this Roman Catholic church designed by Antoni Gaudí surprises many a tourist to the Catalonian city. Even though work began in 1882, it is in a seemingly-permanent unfinished state, half covered with scaffolding and cranes. Despite this, it is a Unesco World Heritage Site, and attracts more than three million visitors a year, who are able to ignore the construction paraphernalia to admire the interior, particularly the geometric columns, which were designed to resemble the trunks and branches of trees. In 2013, it was reported that the church would be finished within 13 years.




Church of Dmitry on Blood, Uglich, Russia
When Ivan the Terrible died in 1584, he left two children, Fyodor, who was handicapped, and Dimitri. When Boris Godunov became regent to replace Fyodor, who was incapable of performing his duties, Dimitri was exiled to Uglich, and found dead in 1591, with a knife in his throat. When his mother sent for the regent’s agents to be executed – sabotage was suspected – Godunov sent forces to Uglich and Dimitri’s supporters were slaughtered or sent to exile in Siberia, while his mother was sent to live at a monastery at Goritsy. Uglich became a pilgrimage site in the 17th century, and Dimitry was revered as a saint. Today, visitors to Uglich will be struck by the church’s red and blue colours on approach on the Volga river – the town is a popular stop-off on a river cruise itinerary.





Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, St Petersburg
Also known as the Church on Spilt Blood and the Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ, this church marks the site where Emperor Alexander II died in March 1881. The building was badly damaged and looted in the Russian Revolution, and any form of religious worship was banned by the Soviet regime. Today it is a landmark, and a honeypot for tourists to St Petersburg, but has not been reconsecrated.




[b]Thorncrown Chapel, USA
With 425 windows and more than 6,000 square feet of glass, Thorncrown chapel in Arkansas is one of the most unique woodland buildings you are likely to come across. An unconventional design for a place of worship, it has nonetheless won multiple architecture awards, and has attracted six million visitors since it opened in 1980. Particularly of note is the way it was designed to maximise the role of light that filters through the trees: shapes of changing proportions flitter through the chapel throughout the day in relation to the position of the sun.
