Owner description: The first black archbishop of Cape Town, Desmond Tutu, used this Anglican cathedral as a religious and political seat.
Reviewed 6 October 2013

Attended morning service 9.30 communion to pace the peace with people of all races and creeds as an equal in South Africa was humbling and wonderful. To sing a hymn in English at the same time as others around me sang in Africans and Zulu was a truly moving. I would recommend this to anyone wishing to share multicultural faith.

This is the seat of the Anglican Church in SA, and former cathedral for Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Noble Prize and Templeton Foundation winner. In addition to being a spiritually and aesthetically significant place, St. George's played a role during the anti-apartheid movement, and the crypt has a small, informative exhibition regarding that, alongside a jazz bar. Definitely an interesting place worth spending quiet time in.

This cathedral would be considered lovely anywhere, being in Africa makes it even more impressive. I loved the stained glass windows.

The first thing you see when you walk in is a large stained glass window. If you think this is impressive, walk halfway down the isle and look up behind you. Amazing!!
Best done during the afternoon sunshine ;)

Historic monument and peaceful - does not compare to some of the cathedrals in Europe, but beautiful nonetheless.
