  • Located in the old part of Colombo city this building is an imposing sight. From the angels guarding its car park entrance to the many iconic figures featured throughout its interior, this cathedral is impressive. It also featured one of the most ornate baptismal fonts that I have seen in churches of any denomination. Very quiet atmosphere inside the cathedral considering its location. Highly recommended.
  • Lovely church.. very holy
  • The best place for prayer in peacefull..
  • Absolutely beautiful. St. Lucia's is testament to great architecture.
  • Sacred place of Catholics. Claimed to be the biggest church in Sri Lanka. During festival times, very crowded and very popular among colombo living people. It's connections to St Anthony's church are historical.
