WIKIPEDIA (excerpt):
The Ear of Dionysius (Italian: Orecchio di Dionisio) is an artificial limestone cave carved out of the Temenites hill in the city of Syracuse, on the island of Sicily in Italy. Its name comes from its similarity in shape to the human ear.
The Ear of Dionysius was most likely formed out of an old limestone quarry. It is 23 metres high and extends 65 metres back into the cliff. Horizontally, it bends in an approximate "S" shape, vertically it is tapered at the top like a teardrop. Because of its shape the Ear has extremely good acoustics, making even a small sound resonate throughout the cave.

OMN member Peter Govan has arranged a 'sacred sound' event including overtone singing in the remarkable acoustic space of Hamilton Mausoleom.
You may listen to a recording of his singing here:

Millions of tourists visit the leaning and tower of Pisa and most of them also find time to see the baptistery which is part of the same ecclesiastical complex. Every half hour they have the chance to listen to a demonstration of the amazing acoustic properties, when a ticket vendor or guard sings a standard line of chords in one voice. They could probably have found better singers but the effect of the long reverb is extraordinary and makes it possible to sing a three-note-chord even without being an overtone singer.

Mathildenhöhe, Darmstadt, Fünf-Finger-Turm Wasserreservoir

The video gives you an impression of this impressive acoustic space. The quality of both image and sound is unfortunately very poor. On the other hand what is heard is a performance of the ground breaking overtone composition Stimmung (1968) by K. H. Stockhausen (1928-2007).

@Charly Wintermeyer:
Ich habe jetzt eine marke auf die karte bei Vang Vieng eingeführt. Es gibt auch ein link für ein von die videos.

I have placed a marker at the village of Vang Vieng, Laos, seven kilometers from the Tham Pou Kham cave. There is also a link to one of the videos shot by Charly Wintermeyer in the cave. You may find three more videos at his profile page here on OMN

Some people asked me where i recorded "Walhalla". It was taken in Walhalla, east of Regensburg, Bavaria, Germany (www.walhalla-regensburg.de). Walhalla is a hall of fame for "famous personalities in German history" – including some artists and musicians. It is a neo-classical building above the Donau. Inside just marble walls, nearly 200 busts - and a perfectly wonderful reverb - and outside a lovely view on the river Donau.

Walhalla is a touristic site with opening time table and entrance fee (see link). If you want to sing there, i recommend a realy cold wintersday because otherwise, you will have to share the place with lots of tourists i suppose. Don't forget warm clothes, there is no heating...

Saurierspuren near Barkhausen, in a beautiful landscape in the Wiehengebirge - the first mountain, if you are coming from the flat North Germany. For people from South Germany it seems to be the last hills on the way to the North Sea - you can find a place in an old stone pit called Steinbruch an den Saurierspuren. You can find imprints from saurians there and to conserve these relicts from ancient times people built a hall with glass and iron over it - the sense of it for musicians and festival organizer: one of the best places for overtone concerts in nature without any booster amplifiers or stuff like that. A place for music in nature for pure nature music.

Hello Susan and Dean,
As far as I know duomo simply means cathedral in Italian (Like Dom in German), so there are several.
At the map I placed the marker at the one in Milano which was erected 1386.
