When you talk about the Renaissance the thing that comes to the mind is art! Magnificent art. We're talking about Michelangelo, Da Vinci, and all the ninja turtles (just kidding). And a place where you'll find concentrated art is a cathedral.

Cathedrals were the perfect canvas for Renaissance artists... there you'll find amazing sculptures and breathtaking ceiling art. Those ceilings are something completely apart! So I thought it was really important to share with you some of the most amazing cathedral ceilings in the world. Of course some of these are modern cathedrals, but they still got fantastic art. These photographs were taken by some really talented people. Please, for more of their work and for the locations of each cathedral, simply click in each image. They'll definitely appreciate your visit. I hope you enjoy this selection, and if you got your own cathedral ceiling art pictures, share it with us! Cheers. ;)
