Glasgow Cathedral

The architecture in Glasgow cathedral is absolutely breathtaking. Each room we went into was stunning. It is unfathomable how many hours it would take to construct such a building with today’s technology and tools, which makes it even more amazing that this building has stood for over 800 years!!! It is also incredible that Below the main sanctuary is yet another sanctuary with architectural details which mimic the one above. There are also some fantastic post war stained glass windows in this church, and it is still a place of worship. One thing that did surprise me was to see a skull and crossbones on archbishop Law’s tomb. It was actually a little bit of a reality check to be in a church with tombs inside of it. We don’t have any churches with dead people inside at home.
