Cathedral of St Mary the Crowned, Gibraltar

3.8
#8 of 12 in Historic Sites in Gibraltar
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • Still as stunning as it was 30 years ago, brought back some fond memories, lovely to see it still being cared for  more »
  • The Cathedral "Church of the Coronation" has a chequered history. In Moorish times, a mosque was built on the site. She was initially converted into a church after the Reconquista, but then demolished under the Catholic monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella, and replaced around 1500 by a larger new building which forms the core of the present Cathedral. Inside the cover to one missing a Kath. Church. Clearly, you want to call it a sober. Is really not a must!
