The St. Mary's Cathedral is the seat of the Archbishop of Sydney. There have been many Roman Catholic cathedrals in Sydney over the years, but the present cathedral was built in 1868.
The cathedral is one of architectural genius, as you'd expect the seat of the Archbishop to be. It was built in the neo-Gothic style, with intricate detailing on all sides of the exterior. The church is one of the largest, in fact, it is the longest church in the country. Inside, you will notice the beautiful stained glass windows depicting various Christian stories, a highlight of the church. Another historical and well-known feature of the cathedral are the bells, which have been changed and replaced over the years, with the total number at 14 today, of which two are used only on certain occasions. St. Mary's also houses a collection of treasures, including the painting 'Stations of the Cross' and the sculpture 'The Unknown Soldier'.
