Adelaide is often described as the most European city in Australia. This is most likely due to the city's many green spaces, large number of architecturally significant buildings and its cafe culture. Adelaide is also a city of churches. It’s not that there are more churches here than in any other city, but they seem to be more prominent, more central, more imposing. From the air, Adelaide looks like a grid of blue squares, with white crosses in the center of each one. The city was founded by religious refugees from Europe in the 19th century, and they brought their churches with them.
