Christ Church Cathedral
The imposing Anglican cathedral of the diocese of Dublin is the seat of the Anglican archbishop of Dublin and Glendalough. The first edifice was built in 1172, on the site of a wooden church (1038) that had disappeared. The current building with its combination of English Gothic and neo-Romanesque styles principally dates from 1871-78, although the north wall of the nave belonged to the original cathedral.
