A good workout hiking up to this lovely old cathedral in a delightful hilltop garden setting. Begun in 1925 & completed in 1965! A few planning issues & a world war along the way! Always, in a busy travel itinerary, a space of calm is to be found in these tranquil places of worship. In the streets surrounding the cathedral... More
This is a beautiful church, the interior is stunning as is the stained glass windows. There are quite a few steps to climb but worth the effort.
You can either drive up to the Cathedral, walk up the main steps from the end of Trafalgar street or walk up by some of the lovely pathways. There is a huge organ in the church and some lovely stain glass windows. Very peaceful inside. From the front of the church you get a view back down the main street... More
It is so sad to see this beautiful building in partial ruins. It is held together with a steel exoskeleton with a gaping hole in the roof and birds flying in and out. If you saw it pre-earthquake you will be amazed at the change. The current issue is who should pay for the rebuild, if a rebuild is feasible.
A lot of steps to the cathedral but it is a spectacular building and worth a visit. We did it one evening and there were a surprising numbers of tourists around.
It's just nearby the city central, very easy to approach. The atmosphere in Church is quiet and holy, but it's pity that I missed the rehearsal when I arrived.
Located on a hill with commanding views of the area. The cathedral is impressive inside and out. well worth putting on your list of things to see.
The cathedral/church is worth a visit. It's not particularly extraordinary, but we enjoyed our visit and were lucky enough to visit it when an instrumental trio was practising for an evening performance. Lovely.
We were staying near the church and wandered through quite by chance, on our way to downtown. What a beautiful place...so quiet and serene. So nice to find a church that is actually open to the public.
