The long history of foreign settlements in the region has shaped the city of Nagasaki. The city stands out from the rest of Japan in various ways, and in particular, it has made Nagasaki the main centre for Christianity in the country. As a result, the city, and the prefecture at large, are embellished with captivating churches that pop up around town and on top of the mountains. Some of these churches are historical landmarks while others are just simply beautiful and worth the look. Religious beliefs aside, the churches in the region are very charming and deserve a look.
