Cathedral of St Mary the Crowned, Gibraltar

3.7
#8 of 12 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.

    Nothing special-the Church what many. You can snag during the passage of the Main Street in the directions of the rock.
