This is the interior of Notre-Dame Basilica, located in the UNESCO World Heritage Historic District in Montreal, Canada. It is built in the Gothic Revival Style. The structure dates from 1823-1829 and the interior to 1870-1900. The decorative style of the Basilica was modeled after St. Chapelle in Paris with a blue and gold color designed to shimmer with twinkling ceiling stars.

Paestum, Italy contains some of the best-preserved Doric Temples that were built by the Greeks 550-450 BCE. There is one temple honoring Athena, goddess of wisdom and two Temples dedicated to Hera, a Great Mother Goddess. There is also a little-known architectural feature called a Heroon. It is a small shrine built to honor the founder of Paestum. There would have been an altar in front of the shrine.

Photos: In the arial view - the temple of Athena is in the North and in the foreground are the two temples dedicated to Hera. The temple of Athena is the first of the individual temples below, then, the Temple I dedicated to Hera and Hera Temple II. The Heroon is the final photo.Image attachmentImage attachment+2Image attachment
