Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception

Dedicated to the Virgin Mother Mary the shrine is the largest Catholic church in the USA. Architected in the Neo-Byzantine (the domed roof being the distinguishing reminder of the Byzantine style) and Neo-Romanesque styles this whole building is a museum caliber work of art. Situated in Washington D.C. this is the tallest habitable building in the D.C. area.
