Anglican Cathedral of St. John the Baptist may be one of the best examples of Gothic Revival architecture in Newfoundland. The history of the cathedral goes as far back as the 17th century when the first parish church was founded on the spot once used for public hangings. Nestled in the historic downtown quarter of the town, the present-day cathedral was rebuilt after the Great Fire of 1892 according to the original 1850s design. Look for the busts of Queen Victoria and William Gladstone among the gargoyles scattered throughout the church to ward off evil spirits.
