One of my best friends and former travel buddy recently got engaged and of course I am beyond happy for her. Since she’ll be goin’ to the chapel soon, it got me thinking about all of the cathedrals, basilicas, churches, abbeys, monasteries, etc. we visited in Europe and there were quite a lot.
Between us three girls, if we didn’t say out loud how nice it would be to get married in one of these gorgeous pieces of architecture then we were certainly thinking it, or at least I was. Whether you are deeply religious or not, here are seven spots worth your time if not for some idyllic wedding planning then for their beauty, strength, and calm alone.
Bath Abbey, Bath
Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore or the Duomo, Florence
Cathedrale St-Pierre, Geneva
St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin
Jeronimos Monastery, Belem
Basilique de Notre Dame de la Garde, Marseille
St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna
