Glasgow Cathedral is among the most iconic landmarks in the city, recognisable by its lime green roof and Gothic style architecture.
It is one of only a few remaining medieval buildings in Glasgow and the only Cathedral on the Scottish mainland to survive the reformation. The first stone was laid and the building was consecrated in the 12th century, meaning worship has been ongoing for over 800 years.It is believed that the location of the Cathedral is where St Mungo, patron saint of Glasgow, built his Church when he founded the city. It is thought that St Mungo was buried on the site around the year 612.
Today, Glasgow Cathedral is one of the city's most popular attractions. For visitors, multi-lingual audio guides are available to teach you about the Cathedral's history. Some must-see highlights inside are the crypt, built to house the tomb of St Mungo and the pulpitum.
