Gibraltar Things to Do: 546 reviews and 998 photos


Construction of the Cathedral began in 1825 and took some 7 years before it was completed although it wasn?t until 1842 that the church was actually given the status of Cathedral. George Tomlinson was designated as the first Bishop. The Cathedral which is also known as the Gibraltar Cathedral has had quite a past. While it managed to survive WWII, it did not come out unscathed when the RFA Bedenham ? an ammunition ship ? blew up in 1951. As a result the building underwent extensive repairs

Address: Cathedral Square
