Owner description: Religious and architectural landmark, a beautiful neo-Baroque building looming largely over the city of St. John's.

A short walk up the old High Street from the museum, past some of the older buildings in town. The Cathedral sits on the top of the hill on the road out to the airport. Although the are trying to raise money to restore what must've been a lovely building, there is a huge amount to be done, and no access is allowed due to its condition. Lets hope there isnt any massive weather until they get a start on this project

I think i am just more into the adventure sports. There is obviously a lot of history on the island and this is one of the few spots that they have actually preserved.

The Cathedral overlooks St Johns and has been damaged badly over the years due to earth quakes . Its worth the walk up the hill . Say a prayer and leave a small offering . Take pictures of downtown St Johns from here as well .

Must have been beautiful cathedral in another era. Right now it is so run down but also being renovated. I hope someday that it is returned to its former beauty.

Currently under extensive renovation (interior floor) but the exterior is worth seeing
