Oldest building in the City. Medieval in origin and well worth a visit. Much of its original Catholic identity has been eradicated through the ages but vestiges are still to be found in the architecture.

Lovely church. We were met by guides who ensured we were given written guides to explain our way around. The walk around the church took about 30mins. and is worth a visit if your in Perth city centre.
