The most obvious spiritual places are generally regarded as religious places. How many books feature these special places? I’ve identified a few:
A church (of England) church in The Good Vicar by John Samson
A Greek orthodox church and an ancient church (later known as Crystal Palace) in Coventry feature in The Duelling Worlds by Sam Riverbanks
St Paul’s, a Polish church in Ealing and various others in A Second Chance by Anna Ryland
There is a Presbyterian Church in Naomi Young-Rodas’ If it Falls
And a whole book about a church which became a VAD hospital during World War 1 – St John’s United Reformed Church by Northwood Community Arts.
Linda Kane has a few churches and other spiritual places in her Luci de Foix series: Black Madonna: The Pope’s Obsession and Death is an Illusion.
Jo Wilkinson’s When Falls the Night and Leslie Tate in Love’s Register have spiritual places rather than a building, as does Kathleen Bates in Joyful Witness.
