I wanted to see Wellington's cathedral after having a good look at its predecessor, nearby Old St Paul's (a lovely 19th century building with an amazing and unique interior). Old St Paul's became too small for the growing congregation and the church authorities wanted an earthquake-resistant in any permanent structure, and especially its cathedral. The result is an attractive, modern building that is earthquake resistant, constructed of cement, yet painted a soft pinkish-off white color. The interior is artistic with some awe inspiring features: lovely, modern stained glass and opaque angels sculpted into glass windows, much lightness and large spaces. Worth seeing.
