St. Paul’s Cathedral is a magnificent sample of English baroque architecture, designed by Sir Christopher Wren and completed in 1711. Situated in London, the Cathedral is a top attraction for the capital city and an architectural masterpiece, its dome being considered the finest in the world.

A cathedral rises up for the glory of our spirit, it is the symbol of the infinite power which waits inside, for us to discover it and make our world better.
