This is a very old atmospheric building which has been made visitor friendly without compromising the integrity of the church. It's fascinating from a Historical point of view, but also maintains a sense of reverence. Also good place to buy postcards.

Oldest building in the City. Medieval in origin and well worth a visit. Much of its original Catholic identity has been eradicated through the ages but vestiges are still to be found in the architecture.

I like the accoustic here and have heard some fine concerts. The setting is pleasant too, in Perth's Restaurant Quarter. But the greatest pleasure was to be allowed to climb up the belfry and onto the roof, seeing on the way the mechanism for the...More
