Blessed with some of Europe's finest Victorian architecture and the distinctive work of famed architects Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Alexander "Greek" Thomson, Glasgow has become a design mecca. Mackintosh's greatest achievement, the Glasgow School of Art on Renfrew Street, was damaged by a fire in 2014, but renovation is under way thanks to a huge, spontaneous fund raised by graduates and the general public, as well as the government. The Gallery of Modern Art and the City Chambers, both in the city center, are must-sees for fans of art and architecture. For a more medieval perspective, visit Provand's Lordship, the oldest house in Glasgow, dating back to 1417. The magnificent Glasgow Necropolis, which was modeled after the Pere Lachaise cemetery in Paris, overlooks Glasgow Cathedral, a rare example of Scottish Gothic architecture that predates the Reformation.
