    Magnificent Cathedral at the Heart of the City
    We visited this iconic historical cathedral located right in the centre of Melbourne overlooking the Federation Square. The impressive glass paintings inside the Cathedral depicted stories from the Bible. The cathedral gets quite busy during the daytime with residents & visitors crowding to offer prayers all day around.

    Cathedral is built to last
    St Patrick's Cathedral is built of hard-wearing bluestone in Neo-Gothic style, which was popular at the time. St Partrick's is the cathedral church for the Diocese of Melbourne. When it was built in the 19th century, most of Victoria's Catholics were of Irish descent. St Patrick is the Patron Saint of Ireland. St Patrick's is an impressive structure. It has statues of a number of prominent Irishmen in its forecourt, including Archbishop Daniel Mannix.

    A masterpiece Gothic style cathedral
    A truly remarkable architecture masterpiece. The gothic style cathedral was so beautiful our jaws dropped the moment we stepped in. The stained glass and fine detailing inside and outside captured our hearts. We would highly recommend visiting this cathedral if you are in Melbourne.

    Cathedral is neo-gothic in bluestone
    St Patrick's Cathedral is the cathedral of the Catholic Church in Melbourne. St Parrick's is a neo-gothic Church, built mainly of bluestone, a favorite building material in the 19th century. St Patrick's was named for St Patrick, patron saint of Ireland. In days gone by, many Catholics in Melbourne had Irish ancestry.

    Stained glass windows
    I felt that this building has a strong presence. There are many kinds of stained glass inside and when you go to this place on a sunny day, you can see so beautiful glasses. Furthermore, as you proceed through the building, you can see a big stained glass window. This glass is the most beautiful I think. If you come to Melbourne, you should try to going to this building.

Close to my god. Peaceful and touching. Some tourists were taking photos. A bit far from CBD but still worth to visit.
