Europe RR - Group 103 * Churches

It has been nice to take part in this RR. I'll join more groups after the my holidays. 
For group 103, I've got churches from Sweden and Italy, sent by Gerald and Olimpia.

Varberg Church is situated at the marketplace in Varberg, Halland County, Sweden. The church was completed in 1772, as a replacement of an elder church from 1687 that was destroyed in a fire on 18 May 1767.
The interior of the church is neoclassical. Mostly of it is from the 19th century. - in: wikipedia

The Basilica of Sant'Andrea is a Roman Catholic co-cathedral and minor basilica in Mantua, Lombardy (Italy). It is one of the major works of 15th-century Renaissance architecture in Northern Italy. Commissioned by Ludovico III Gonzaga, the church was begun in 1472 according to designs by Leon Battista Alberti on a site occupied by a Benedictine monastery, of which the bell tower (1414) remains. The building, however, was only finished 328 years later. Though later changes and expansions altered Alberti's design, the church is still considered to be one of Alberti's most complete works. It looms over the Piazza Mantegna. - in: wikipedia
