The Cathedral is built on the site of the Church of St Anne, which was founded in 1776. Among many notable features are a mosaic commemorating the 1500th anniversary of St. Patrick coming to Ireland and the Baptistery ceiling, which contains over 150,000 pieces of mosaic each individually placed by hand. Leader of Unionist opposition to Home Rule, Edward Carson, is the only person buried here.
It was not until 2007, with the addition of the stainless steel 'Spire of Hope', that Belfast Cathedral was finally completed, though its foundation stone was laid in 1899.
A beautiful building on the inside and outside, steeped in history and heritage.
