Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, Gibraltar

(3.8/5 based on 35+ reviews on the web)
The Cathedral of the Holy Trinity is the cathedral for the Church of England Diocese of Gibraltar in Europe. Located in Cathedral Square, it is sometimes referred to simply as Gibraltar Cathedral, although it should not be confused with the Cathedral of St. Mary the Crowned, which is Gibraltar's Roman Catholic cathedral. The cathedral is particularly notable for its Moorish revival architecture, particularly in its use of horseshoe arches. This is an architectural style inspired by Moorish architecture, appropriate given the period of Moorish control in Gibraltar's history.History19th centuryThe church was originally built to meet the needs of Anglican worshippers among the civil population of Gibraltar, as the King's Chapel was primarily reserved for military use. John Pitt, Earl of Chatham, who had arrived as Governor of Gibraltar in 1820, persuaded the British Government to sell a derelict building and use the money to build a church on the land.

  • It is very original to see this Cathedral of the Anglican Church, which has the appearance of a mosque without a minaret. Once inside, however, we find the typical decoration of the Anglican Church

  • It is a church like many, well worth a visit, if one passes it anyway. Free admission, so ok.

  • Would have liked an information leaflet. The Moorish design doesn’t seem in keeping with it being a CofE cathedral. I liked the prayers in front of the altars. Peaceful  more »
