There are many reasons why Glasgow’s Gothic Cathedral is an important building.
It’s the only Scottish cathedral on the mainland to have survived the Reformation relatively unscathed. Dating back to the 15th century, the building stands on a historic site blessed by St Ninian in 397.
Another reason to visit the cathedral is found in the lower church, where the tomb of St. Mungo lies amid a forest of Gothic stone pillars.
Also admire the carved stone choir screen, the lofty nave, the traditional and modern stained glass, and the medieval wooden beams of the cathedral’s roof.
Glasgow Cathedral is in the city center on Castle Street. To get here from Buchanan Street, follow the aptly named Cathedral Street.
