* Albidion (UsefulNotes/{{Vatican|City}}-style), or rather the humongous cathedral-city at its center, in ''TabletopGame/AnimaBeyondFantasy''. Arkángel, the capital of the Holy Empire of Abel, could count too (rather as UsefulNotes/{{Jerusalem}}-style).

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', [[PlanetTerra Holy Terra]], besides serving as capital for [[TheEmpire the Imperium]], is also the seat for the [[GodEmperor Imperial Cult]] and [[ChurchMilitant Ecclesiarchy]]. There's literally a galaxy's worth of other holy worlds, of course, including Cardinal Worlds ruled directly by the Ecclesiarchy, and Shrine Worlds dedicated to an Imperial Saint. And in a weird example, the Imperial fortress-planet of Cadia is a holy site to the heretical Word Bearers legion, since it's where their primarch converted to worship the [[GodOfEvil Chaos Gods]] before the HorusHeresy.

Some cities are just places where a lot of people live and work. Some are seats of worldly authorities, elevating them above others. And then there is the Holy City, a site so intrinsically tied to a [[TheChurch particular religion]] that it became a symbol of faith all by itself. In peacetime, it will result in thousands to millions of devoted pilgrims visiting it every day. In wartime, expect it to be defended to the last breath, even more so than a national capital (unless it ''is'' the [[UsefulNotes/{{Rome}} national capital]]), and the consequences if it is ever sacked by an invader are [[DespairEventHorizon a lot graver]].
