The Borgund stave church in west Norway was built by the Vikings around the year 1181. It’s completely made of wood, and has been standing unchanged for almost a thousand years..
I’ve been here many times, but it still gives me goose bumps to see this beautiful church!
Bolded for emphasis.

Moorish architecture in Italy
The extravagant residence Castello di Sammezzano sits on top of a hill in Tuscany, Northern Italy. Originally it was built in the Moorish style in 1605 for Ximenes d’Aragona and then re-designed between 1853 and 1889. After the war the castello was used as a luxury hotel until closure in the mid to late 1990’s. It was abandoned until April 2012 when the FPXA committee was formed, aiming to promote and enhance the castle.
