I really appreciated this beautiful place of worship. In a number of churches in France and Italy, a similar phenomenon can be distinguished; an upper church and another one in the basement.

The Cathedral is a monumental building. There are many flyers witb explanation. Akso the surroundings are impressive. It is about a graveyard on the top of the hill with very old funeral stones and crosses.

Walking up to the cathedral you see the darkened stone, the spires, and the dark windows--the architecture is magnificent. Stepping into this active cathedral brings you face to face with hundreds of years of history. Note the columns, and the stone statues--the cross at the...More

The Cathedral is beautiful especially the stained glass windows. Make sure you visit the museum next door that has exhibits regarding various world religions. Lovely visit.

Beautiful stained-glass windows, very detailed. It's so quiet and dignified place, good for a stop to catch a breath during a trip around Glasgow. Check also a small cementry just outside the cathedral (I'm not talking about Glasgow Necropolis), a small piece of history!

It's very impressive. Day and night. It's near the Necropolis and it's exciting to explore it. Wonderful Gothic architecture.

Splendid building. Agree with all that's been written. Make sure you remember to descend to the church under the church - and visit the easily overlooked sacristy in the NE corner. Only a small notice draws attention to the bullets in the door!

This is a beautiful Cathedral inside, with lovely stained glass Windows. The only drawback if you can call it that, is it's cold inside so if going make sure you wrap up well. It's definately well worth a visit.

A building full of character, the stained glass windows are works of art in themselves and the sub level adds an extra dimension of atmosphere.
