  • This church is simple and by no means characterized by large paintings. Front of the Church of a beautiful Marie stature.

  • The first stop on the tour. Portugal strongly fostered Catholicism in Sri Lanka. This is the main Catholic Church of the country. Despite the fact that only 6 per cent of the population are Catholics, there are a lot of people, largely thanks to tourists from various European countries. Inside are statues of Saints, including the patron saint of the Church.

  • Best church I have ever been to, their pipe organ is massive and unique. The church gives you the feeling as if you are in Rome.
  • This is the biggest church in the island. The pope John Paul II had the official mass here, when he visited Sri Lanka 1996! A Catholic church started by a dutch priest!
  • Very beautiful architectural structure can be seen on the church and very calm and quite place to pray and get blessed
  • Fantastic church, your prayers will be answered. Have faith and mercy, you will never let down. Old Ben Alumni 1994
  • Peace full place,though I don't worship at this cathedral I use to grace the church for weddings or just for a walk in the evening with my parents and friends.

Where to stay in Colombo

Despite its relatively low cost of living, Colombo accommodations tend to be fairly pricey. Close to the sea and the lake, as well as near the city's parks and the plazas, hotels come in the form of old colonial buildings and ultra-modern high rises, with a decent selection of each to choose from. Budget-conscious travelers should pay attention to the short rental options in the town's more residential areas, or look for the smattering of simple, but serviceable options close to the main train stations, and on the side streets set back from the waterfront.
