St Philip's Cathedral

Built in 1715 by Thomas Archer, this cathedral has an austere façade enriched by the exuberance of the Western tower (concave and crowned with a dome and lantern) and Western door (fantasy Baroque door mixing a variety of styles). On the inside, huge stained-glass windows by Burne-Jones depict the birth of Christ, the Crucifixion, the Ascension and the Last Judgement.
