    Gothic cathedrals were created as resting places of God, and representing heavenly Jerusalem.

Originally I was going to title this the “Top 10 Cathedrals You Should See Before You Stop Seeing Cathedrals” because that’s really what this list is – churches worth going to and checking out – but that title isn’t very good.
