St. Mary's Cathedral, Sydney
Visit Australia's longest church, St. Mary's Cathedral. Completed in 1882 in the Gothic Revival style, the cathedral of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney provides an impressive profile as it stretches back from Hyde Park. From the outside, admire the yellow-block sandstone facade, Gothic windows, pointed arches, and sharp spires reaching skyward. Inside, crane your neck to take in the high central nave and scan the walls to view colorful stained-glass windows. Pope Pius XI bestowed on the church the honor of minor basilica in 1932, and Pope Benedict XVI visited it during World Youth Day in 2008.

St. Mary's Cathedral Reviews
ハイドパークの東側にある大聖堂で、なんと200年以上の歴史があるそうです。ひときわ大きな大聖堂なので遠くからでもその立派さがよくわかります。内装も素晴らしく、美しい建築様式など見応え充分のスポットです。 more »It is a cathedral on the east side of Hyde Park and has a history of more than 200 years. Because it is a very large cathedral, you can understand the splendidity even from a long distance. The décor is excellent and the beautiful architecture is a spectacular spot.
I've seen dozens of cathedrals like this one, nothing special. Nothing compare with the great cathedrals in Europe. more »
As far as Australian cathedrals go this is really nice. It is a little dark but still splendid. One day while visiting after a seminar the boys choir were practicing and it was like another world. Truly magnificent
Absolute beauty this is. If you're a person who appreciate architecture, this is a place to visit. Lovely ambience. Surrounding area also is very beautiful. Quite a calm place, considering the crowd that flows in. Plus this is in Sydney
