Trip Planner: Africa / South Africa / Western Cape / Cape Town / Cape Town Central / St. George's Cathedral
Renowned as a firm symbol of democracy, St. George's Cathedral is the oldest Anglican cathedral in Southern Africa and the former seat of the city’s first black archbishop. This “people’s cathedral” is not only famous for its role in the struggle against apartheid, but also for its involvement in women's rights and many other campaigns against social injustice. See the stained glass window dominating the west wall, which depicts the triumphant figure of a black Christ.

Anglican Cathedral located at the end of the Company Gardens, it is certainly worth taking a few moments to walk through---they offer info for self-guided tours at the end of the main aisle. Former..... more »
A beautiful building but so sorry to see how streetsleepers and people who just do not through their rubbish into dustbins , that is provided, has run down this landmark more »
The splendour of this Cathedral is what I can only imagine the Cathedrals and castles of Europe must be like! The fact that this was built before the modern architectural advancements of the moder age completely blows my mind away! There is the most interesting things to see and although I'm not Catholic I really did enjoy all the Catholic symbolism, sculpture and religious artifacts to be seen here. It really is a splendour of a building!
Beautiful cathedral. Truly a place of worship. Take your time and absorb the inner peace on offer.
