The modern and vibrant city of Glasgow features a splendid monument dating back to the Middle Ages: the 12th-century Glasgow Cathedral, also known as High Kirk of Glasgow, St Kentigern's or St Mungo's Cathedral. The dark spire and green roofs proudly tower over the city’s contemporary buildings. The tomb of the eponymous Scottish saint and the beautiful Victorian cemetery draw many visitors.
Sober and elegant, the Glasgow Cathedral is a must-see attraction. This Gothic structure boasts some interesting architecture, but what makes the cathedral truly special is that it is the only medieval cathedral on the Scottish mainland to have survived the 1560 Protestant Reformation. The largest part of the current building dates back to the 15th century, but some parts were constructed even earlier in the 12th century. The square in front of the Cathedral houses the St. Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art, which hosts exhibitions on international art from every religion around the world.
