Cathedral in the City
St George's Cathedral is the oldest cathedral in Southern Africa. It is the mother church of the Anglican diocese of Cape Town built by Sir Herbert Baker out of sandstone from Table Mountain. The Cathedral was the vision of Robert Gray, the first Bishop of Cape Town, who wanted to have a cathedral worthy of the Mother City. The Cathedral is known as 'The People's Cathedral' because of its role in the resistance against apartheid.
All are welcome to visit the Cathedral to learn more about its history, to visit the Crypt and to view its magnificent design and stained glass windows. Guided tours can be arranged.
