From an architectural perspective, a very impressive and successful fusion of classical colonial and contemporary styles.

The building is beautifully architected. It's expansion highlights the modern era with its natural lighting and glass/steel materials without detracting from its original charm. Check Mass times before attending.

St Mary's is beatiful and the restoration work blends history with modern themes making it a beautiful blend of old and new. A great space to ponder life and faith.

Beautiful stone Cathedral which has llighting after sundown. If your staying at the Travelodge with a balcony overlooking Hay Street, room will look directly over the Cathedral and Palace

This cathedral is an architectural beauty, worthy of a visit from all who pass by. It's so peaceful and quiet inside you don't even notice the city beyond. Take time to reflect and be still as you soak in the atmosphere and quiet

Right in the city is this cozy cathedral surrounded by nice greens with a water fountain in front. Very soothing, calming and peaceful. Only a few minutes walk to the shopping streets.
