Take a tour of World's Most Beautiful Cathedrals – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats. I’d like to show you world's most beautiful cathedrals. The first on the list is a prominent Orthodox cathedral in Russia; Saint Basil's Cathedral. Comprising of nine chapels, each tipped with onion shaped domes; the cathedral is a prodigious site. Unparalleled in Byzantine art, this marvel dazzles Russia's skyline with its eccentricity. The church of San Michele of Lucca is a medieval marvel which graces the old city with its presence. Archangel Michael, who sits on top of the incredible 13th century Romanesque facade, is said to be the guardian of the city. Crowning the slopes of Quebec's Mount Royal, is the stunning Saint Joseph's Oratory. Built largely in Italian Renaissance style of architecture, its salient feature, the prolific copper dome, was constructed to pay homage to Canada's patron saint - Saint Joseph. The sepulchral building standing on the grounds of Granada, Nicaragua is the mystic Granada Cathedral. The intricate details and architecture of the cathedral, predominantly constructed in neoclassical architectural style, bestows it with subtlety and sublimity. Devoted to Saint Alexander Nevsky, this Orthodox cathedral in Tallinn dominates the Estonian skyline with its admirable domes, beautifully colored and decorated with pleasing artwork and gold gilding. The cathedral adds a refreshing air to the culturally rich city of Tallinn.
