Europe's cathedrals are its finest works of art.

Even today no other buildings on earth can compare with these structures. Eight centuries after most of them were built, they still tower over cities from Cologne to Paris and from Moscow to Barcelona. They are testament to the continent's religious and political history but also to its architecture, engineering and craftmanship.

In Europe's 100 Best Cathedrals, bestselling author Simon Jenkins travels the continent to illuminate the very best of them all - and to highlight new discoveries.

Cathedrals appeal to people of every faith and none. All can marvel at the crossing at Ely, at the shadows darting through Toledo's Transparante or at the evening sun tracing across the facade of St Mark's Venice. These are wonders of the world, manufactured of brick, stone, wood and glass but elevated by a sense of mystery.

Beautifully illustrated with colour photographs throughout, this joyous exploration of Europe's history, geography and art tells the stories behind these public miracles, showing the cathedral's central role in the European imagination. Readers will be inspired to make their own pilgrimage to all one hundred of them.
