In France a huge number of churches, perhaps the most interesting of them are the cathedrals: Chartres Cathedral, Notre Dame de Paris, the Strasbourg Cathedral, the Russian Orthodox Church in nice.

The blocks overlap are striking not so much for its size as very smooth edges in those places where damage and erosion was not too strong. Obtaining such quality without cutting impossible.
