For all those of us who love Gothic art, these images are absolutely inspiring. Enjoy them.

These old buildings are magnificent! It would be cool if someone built them like this now days. But, then, I guess these wouldn't be so special to us.

Thank you for sharing this. You post the most interesting things!

Thank you Su! I wrote the country where they are, for someone who wants to visit them.

But one is being built now - Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. These buildings take generations to complete and Sagrada Familia is no exception. It was started in the late 19th century and construction is still underway. And it IS all the more special for that.

The style of Flamboyant Gothic is from XIV and XV centuries. Everything similar did after that is inspired in this style. I am also a fan of Gaudi, and as an Spanish I'm very proud of this artist. I wrote an article about him, you will surely be interested on it: Antonio Gaudi, The Awesome Architect

But I also think as Su, that constructions of nowadays are mostly cold, minimalist and lacking of interest.
