5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

After a delightful High Tea at the Windsor Hotel, we walked to St. Patrick's Cathedral to admire the gothic architecture, the peacefulness and gardens surrounding the Cathedral.

“Amazing architecture & very calming atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

Worth a visit, the building is pristine. The craftsmanship is truly great. Amazing stained glass windows, wood carving, stone masonry etc I had a nice chat with the vicar as well. Very gothic in design (the building lol, not the vicar :)
If you like architecture, definitely worth the visit! Enjoy :)

“Stunning Architecture”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

This is an awe inspiring church that is worth visiting. It doesn't sell itself as a tourist attraction so you're free to roam the church but there are no tourist maps pointing out points of interest. It is a very peaceful place whether you're a catholic or not this places is somewhere you'll remember. The gothic architecture is amazing and stands out in the CBD of Melbourne.
