St. Cecilia's Abbey. "I prefer going to the West End for Compline at a monastery than to the theatre; I have to restrain myself from jumping off 'buses when I pass a Catholic Church, because I want to greet the Lord before I socialise with others; I prefer Church vigils to night-clubs; I march in rosary processions instead of political rallies."

Interior of Segovia Cathedral, Spain - The Cathedral of Santa Maria was started in 1525 and construction was finished in 1768. It occupies the highest point of the city. This is the last Gothic church built in Spain. The style is late Gothic and it replaced the old Romanesque Cathedral after it was destroyed in a fire during the uprising of the Comuneros in 1520.
