“Not a huge Cathedral fan... but as this one has so much history...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

I really enjoyed my visit. The history in itself is enough to really blow you away. I feel so grateful that this still exists and hope that others that come to the country can take advantage to visit.

One of the oldest Cathedrals in South Africa, grand architecture, housing precious parts of history, beautiful stained glass windows and a peaceful place.

“tranquility in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

you like to walk on routes dispersed with historical meaning? then do go to the st. george's cathedral! this is not very common for africa (not like in europe), and thus it is really something special to behold.

“a breath of fresh air”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

lovely old cathedral, walked the labarinth and enjoyed its beautiful stained glass windows especially the rose window overlooking the courtyard. Also, a lovely space among the roses to also pray for the parliament and the people of south. The labarinth is open to anybody during 9am - 5pm and every 2nd saturday of the month a talk and a walk at 2pm... A place of quiet within the busy city centre and next to the company gardens
