St. Peter's Basilica was constructed between 1506 and 1626. Though further work was done to the edifice after that period. Even at that, however, the basic Basilica being constructed in 120 years qualifies as "breakneck speed" in the realm of Medieval cathedral building - 300 years was much more typical.
