"Kirkwall - St. Magnus Cathedral (3)" Top 5 Page for this destination St. Magnus' Cathedral - Kirkwall Tip by shivan

  St. Magnus
by shivan
 
 

This window must bring the image of St. Magnus.
The cult of this saint is very strong in the whole Orkney archpelago, for what I saw, because I found signs of it all over he island (remember the St. Magnus Church in Birsay, north mainland, just a few tips ago?)
The inner part of the cathedral is very nice, and somehow peculiar of this place.
