Henry VII Chapel at Westminster Abbey in London, England

Attached at the east end of the Westminster Abbey facing the Palace of Westminster is the Henry VII Chapel. The Perpendicular Gothic design is spectacular. The Lady Chapel was commissioned by the king in 1503 to honor the Blessed Virgin Mary, his uncle (Henry VI) and as a mausoleum for himself, his wife Elizabeth of York and his family. Over a dozen monarchs are entombed beneath a canopy of a pendant fan vault ceiling, one of the world’s finest.
