Cathedrals and great churches are among the most iconic sights of the world s towns and cities.
Visible from miles around, the cathedrals of Canterbury, St Paul s, Chartres and St Stephen s in Vienna dominate their skylines. Others surprise by their statistics: Salisbury has Britain s tallest spire, Wells the largest display of medieval sculptures in the world, while King s College Chapel in Cambridge boasts the largest fan vaulting in existence. Not all are ancient: Dresden s reconstructed Frauenkirche opened in 2005 and Gaudi s masterpiece in Barcelona is still under construction.
Award-winning travel writer Sue Dobson gives us a highly personal tour of their highlights.
