Tall, elegant spires and a long, grand nave lined with white arches await you at St Andrew's Cathedral. This Neo-Gothic, Anglican cathedral is the country's largest, originally built in 1836. The cathedral was twice rebuilt in its history, the second time due to irreparable damage after being twice hit by lightning. The cathedral is home to three large, stained-glass installations that stand out against the stark overall whiteness. Free, guided tours are offered when services are not in session; during these tours volunteers delve into the cathedral's rich history and intricacies.
