“Part of the tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Part of going to Stanley is taking a picture of this famous landmark. Located in the grounds of the cathedral, the arch is made from the jaws of two blue whales. The monument was raised in 1933 to commemorate the centenary of the British rule in Falkland Islands. Great to see locals sitting under it having their lunch break.
