Christ Church Cathedral, Stanley

4.2
#2 of 14 in Things to do in Stanley
Visit Christ Church Cathedral, the southernmost Anglican cathedral in the world and one of the most architecturally impressive buildings in the Falklands. Pay special attention to the cathedral's intricate, colorful stained glass windows, as well as the large wooden chancel. Looming trees obscure the church from the front, though their preservation is a priority for environmentally-minded Falklanders. Head inside to read numerous plaques written in English, remembers the battles of 1982 fought between British and Argentinian forces. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Stanley trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • Of historical interest and of course the stained glass window that includes a famous nurse and her bicycle. I don't know why anyone wouldn't want to drop in to visit such a unique building in such a u...  more »

  • Great not to see any terrorist looking people here unlike in London. And the dumb Argentinians are so pathetic they think this is their islands. We should nuke them.
  • I think that the Argentine people are indoctrinated from an early age on untrue history about the Falklands islands. The people that live there and have always lived there are from British descent and they should be allowed to live in there own country in peace.
  • This is a beautiful church. Recommend you pop in and check it out if you're in town.
  • Spectacular Anglican Cathedral, complete with stained glass
  • It seems a nice place. Politics comments are offensives. I' am argentinian but I think the problems are in our goverments. A piece of this gratefull land can' t value only a drop of blood of nobody, Britains or Argentinian... Please, we have to live in peace!!! The wars are a horror in all the world. Thanks a lot.
