Bath, England

Steven Dutch, Professor Emeritus, Natural and Applied Sciences, University of Wisconsin - Green Bay

Bath in England is famous for three things: its elegant Georgian row houses, its cathedral and its, well, baths.

The Cathedral

Above: medieval cathedrals often incorporated elements of whimsy. On either side of the main window are ladders with souls climbing to heaven.

Left and below: fan vaulting was a means of creating a large open space by carrying loads to the side columns. This is as beautiful as it gets.
