  • Columbus it anticipates the India in a Costa Cruise-Stat. A tidier India. Our guide (English speaking) leads to the Cathedral. At a group of students who smile at anyone who asks-courteously-a souvenir photo with them. We enter, not big but it is always an archdiocese Church, a Roman Catholic Archdiocese of a religious minority. Curious statues of each column. On fondoun big crocifissso. Large stand fans anticipate that the climate here can be counted in 2006 700 000 heavy Catholic Church baptized on 5 692 004 inhabitants. Vicariate Apostolic of Ceylon (so it was called Sri Lanka) was erected on 3 December 1834 with the brief of Pope Gregory XVI, Former munere territory from the Diocese of Cochin.

  • 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.
  • One of the most beautiful and important church in colombo

  • This is the 3rd biggest cathedral in south asia. This is a quiet and old place to visit specially for the tourist who's much keen on visiting holy places. The inside structure is well designed in an ancient Latin way which makes the whole place much unique to see. Normally it is open from 5:30am to 8:00pm for masses and prayers for public.(i recommend visiting at evening time would be great to explore the cathedral)
