#8 of 15 in Historic Sites in Gibraltar
A center for Catholics in Gibraltar, Cathedral of St Mary the Crowned dates back to the 15th-century Spanish demolishment of a mosque on the same site. Having undergone several alterations through the ages, today the church displays a mix of styles, with subtle ornamentation and a dark blue ceiling complementing the peaceful atmosphere. Many bishops lie buried beneath the cathedral floor, as does Polish military leader Wladyslaw Sikorski, who crashed in the sea near the coast.
