Accommodation near St Georges Cathedral

St George's Cathedral  is located in  Cape Town city. It is an Anglican cathedral and the seat of the Archbishop of Cape Town.

The cathedral is a beautiful example of Victorian era design complete with stained glass windows and a crypt in which there is a restaurant - reminiscent of St Martin's in the Field in London.

It was designed by Sir Herbert Baker and the foundation stone was laid in 1901. The cathedral replaced a church built in 1834,  St. George's Church, on the same site and was remodelled  to its current form since 1936.It is still technically incomplete.

It is known as 'the people's cathedral' because of its role in the resistance against apartheid. St George's welcomed people of all races throughout the apartheid era, and it was Archbishop Desmond Tutu, after he led a mass demonstration of 30 000 people to Grand Parade in 1989, who coined the phrase 'rainbow people' to describe South Africa's diverse population.

St Geoge's Cathedral is the site of one of the country's few labyrinths, and its stained glass windows include the work of Gabriel Loire.

The central panel of the great west window is dominated by the figure of the triumphant Christ. This Christ is black - a visual counterpart to the white Christ of Calvary that stands above the High Altar - a symbol of the Cathedral's commitment to represent all races.

Cape Town CBD is not too bad. You can take a walk and see what the city is about. There are a lot of tourists touring the city.
