more unusual churches

Here are some more unusual churches.
1. Top.
Paraportiana church, Mykonos, Greece.
This Paraportiana church is one of the most famous architectual structures in Greece.
It's name means second gate because it was built on the site of the gates of the medieval stone walls.
Some parts of this church dates back to 1425 and the rest was built during the 16th and 17th centuries.
2. Bottom.
Green Church. Buenos Aires. Argentina.
A parish church known as the "Huerto de Olivos" meaning "Garden of Olives."
3. Middle.
Borgund Stave church. Norway.
Stave churches have been very usual all over medieval Northwestern Europe but now you can only find them in Norway.
It is the best preserved of Norways 28 stave churches. This wooden church has not changed since it was built in the 12th century.
