Site Comments:

Very fine example of Gothic Revival architecture. Landmark building. Fragments of earlier cathedral retained and incorporated in the precinct.

Strong symbol for democracy in SA. The clergymen and the cathedral recognised for its political stance taken during the Apartheid era. Served as meeting point for activists.
