St. Giles' Cathedral

St. Giles' Cathedral, Edinburgh

St. Giles' Cathedral, also known as the High Kirk of Edinburgh, is the Mother Church of Presbyterianism. The church is located on the Royal Mile which runs between the Palace of Holyroodhouse and Edinburgh Castle. It is named St. Giles after a sixth century Frenchman who became the patron saint of cripples.
The building dates back to the early part of the 12th century and has been repaired many times. What makes the St. Giles' Cathedral stand out is the unique crown spire which was added in 1495.

I was there just the other day! Isn't Edinburgh lovely? Well, it is lovely when you reach the Old Town. The new bit is not so lovely.
