Cathedral of St Mary the Crowned, Gibraltar

3.7
#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.

  • The Cathedral has no check nothing special, if raisins ahead, at a glance, but go only to see it, not worth it

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