Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, Gibraltar

3.5
#9 of 12 in Historic Sites in Gibraltar
Church Tourist Spot
Dominating the adjacent square with its Moorish revival horseshoe arches, Cathedral of the Holy Trinity dates back to British rule in Gibraltar. Governor John Pitt established a church here in the mid-19th century to serve the Anglican community. Though that church survived World War II unscathed, it suffered extensive damage upon the 1951 explosion of the naval vessel RFA Bedenham. Renovations brought a new stained glass window on the east wall, made entirely from the fragments left after the attack.
