Photos of castles, palaces, fortresses, temples, cathedrals, monasteries - USA

The sights of the United States are so diverse that you can see the nearby Catholic cathedrals and Buddhist temples. When the colonization of America by European countries began in the 17th century, the British, French, Spaniards and Dutch brought their architectural traditions. Two centuries later, Japanese and Indian immigrants came here in search of work on plantations. Today, photos of the United States are full of ultra modern skyscrapers to medieval castles and rock palaces.
