A beautiful sight

Not everyday you come across something so beautiful that makes you stop and stare.


This has been voted the most beautiful bookstore in the world on this website.  A 13th century Dominican cathedral in Holland has been turned into a bookstore. The owners wanted to maximise the space but were not allowed to make any structural changes to the building or even attach any supports on walls.


Architects turned a free standing scaffolding into a 3 storey book "flat". 

Even the cafe area is designed with God in mind.
