    Dropped into the cathedral as I was walking about downtown. Was met by a lovely older lady who was pleased to give me a guided tour. The building is magnificent and the stories she told me were very interesting. If you're there, make sure to look for the "special something" high up in one of the stone pillars along the righthand side (as you face the altar) of the church.

    "Beautiful church - an ideal place for a wedding" we were allowed to participate in a wedding in this church. The Church is very beautiful and very atmospheric, and are a wonderful backdrop for a wedding. The Buntglässer of the Church are particularly beautiful. All in all definitely worth a visit.

Where to stay in St. John's

To appreciate the history and colorful architecture of North America's oldest colonial city, there's no better place to stay than in the city center. This popular neighborhood displays the city's iconic, brightly painted Victorian houses, with a selection of guesthouses and inns clustered around Government House. Staying just west of the city center, near the Memorial University of Newfoundland, works as a pleasant alternative, with the expansive Pippy Park right at your doorstep.
