Gorgeous Astronomical Clock of Saint-Jean Cathedral.

The cathedral of Saint-Jean in the French town of Besançon, capital of the region Franche-Comté, has a magnificent astronomical clock with 70 dials:

... the clock features 70 dials, showing 122 indications; among them the local time of 17 places over the world, times and height (!) of the tides in 8 different French ports, perpetual calendar, leap year cycles, times of sunrise and sunset.

I recently dreamt of a monstrous church that looked a lot like this. It was made from black stone and was run by ghosts. While it had hundreds of windows there were no doors. Creepy.
