I feel like I’ve gone on a long trip to catch Pokemon given that each PokeStop is a religious building/monument. I’ve however noticed that there’s this signature style to churches, large churches, etc. They were probably made highly ornamented, back in the day as a conciliation to the gods… but our sense of aesthetics has surely evolved in past few centuries, has it not? The Aurelios shrine shows that a religious monument can look breath-taking without all the intricate marble carving and stained glass. It uses a beautiful combination of wood and stone with just a hint of marble to give the shrine an opportune tone. I have to say that I absolutely love the way the skylight channels the rays of the sun inwards to make it look like a halo around the god. This also gives the shrine an unusually eye-catching outer black shadow. I’d totally drop by everyday to get my share of blessings and Pokeballs!
