Beautiful Churches Around the World

The founder of CDS Foods, Cesare Della Santina originally launched the company as a brokerage, then expanded into importing produce, beginning with garlic and expanding to other foods, including dragon fruit and Asian pears. In his free time, Cesare Della Santina likes to travel and enjoys visiting churches and monuments. Travelers interested in visiting historic and beautiful churches have many options, among them:

1. Las Lajas Sanctuary: This Neo-Gothic cathedral is perched precariously above a deep river gorge in southern Colombia. Built between 1916 and 1949, the church was designated a minor basilica by the Catholic Church.

2. La Sagrada Familia: Created by Antonio Gaudi, this surrealist cathedral is one of Barcelona’s most recognizable architectural works. It is still under construction after more than 130 years.

3. Duomo: The fourth-largest church in the world, Milan’s Gothic cathedral took more than five centuries to complete. The construction includes 135 marble spires and more than 3,000 statues on the exterior alone.
