St. Paul's Cathedral

The first stone of the Cathedral of Saint Paul was laid by Bishop Wilson in 1839 and it was inaugurated in 1847. It was the first "Episcopal Church" of the Orient. It is 82 meters long and 27 meters wide. The original tower, 61 meters high, was first destroyed in 1897 after an earthquake and then again in 1934 after a new earthquake. It was rebuilt in 1938 on the model of the Bell Harry Tower of the Canterbury Cathedral. Inside you can see magnificent stained glass windows and beautiful wooden carved benches. The east wall is covered with two splendid Florentine frescoes. The tomb of Bishop Wilson is in a small room in the basement of the cathedral.
