I’ve heard many people say that after visiting a European country (or two or three in some cases)they were “burnt” out from churches. That once you’ve seen one, you’ve “seen” them all. I could not disagree more with this statement. Every church is different as each one has its own unique history and story to be told. Not to mention the architecture; even in the same city no two churches are the “same,” inside or out.
And in the majority of countries you will visit in the world, a church is one thing you can always count on seeing.
