The most "Beautiful Church" is the one where you worship and where you meet God -

Well, ya beat me to Notre Dame Basilica! This is a pic I took during Corpus Christi this year. I love that our Cardinal-Archbishop insists on celebrating the feast on the traditional Thursday night.

I visited the Benedictine monastery St Benoit du Lac during Canadian Thanksgiving. It's fairly austere inside, but the surroundings are magnificent.

This is the Sanctuary of the Holy Sacrament in Montreal, run by the Monastic Fraternities of Jerusalem - an urban monastic order dedicated to Eucharistic adoration and the celebration of the divine office

And in a city with four basilicas, this is my neighbourhood French parish church. I've only actually gone there once, for the feast of St Faustina Kowalska - where there was mass, eucharistic adoration and the chaplet of divine mercy.

I think that structure was built for a papal visit. Obviously it's ugly, but the all-seeing eye is actually relatively common in traditional Catholic and Eastern Orthodox art in places like Poland, Russia and other places in Eastern Europe. Granted, it's done in a tacky manner there, but in and of itself, it is not a bad thing.
