You can find this church on Paul street, it's almost hidden between the houses. It's very nice from the outside, we couldn't go inside as it was shut at the time.

A lovely church with a wonderful and welcoming vibe. I went into the church to pray and the church is so beautiful and warm and made me remember how proud I am to be Catholic.

We had a wonderful guided tour of this incredible Cathedral. You really need to have a guided tour to get the full Historic value. It is a beautiful building. We were glad we did this tour.

This church is incredible! The craftsmanship of the stained glass, marble pillars, carved confessionals and more was amazing. Would have loved to take pictures inside, but several people were in there praying and I didn't feel it was right to be taking photos. How sad...More

St Peter and Paul's Church is a perfect refuge from the hustle and bustle of Patrick Street and Plunkett Street. Its gothic revival interior is serenity itself, particularly the 3/4 life-size angel lamps that illuminate the aisles. JUst around the corner from Starbucks and the...More
