Washington, D.C. may be most known for its monuments and memorials, but its buildings are what really help it stand out from other cities. The District is known for being a shorter city, but it’s also one with a varied array of architectural styles, from Victorian to Colonial to French Second Empire.

With buildings like the Library of Congress, it’s hard not to be in awe with the kind of architecture Washington, D.C. has to offer.

If you’re more attracted to religious architecture, Curbed would suggest checking out churches like the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, as pictured below.

Maybe you veer more towards buildings that make a statement — literally.

Or maybe it’s the residential homes that peak your interest the most.
