St. Anne's Cathedral, Belfast, County Antrim

Full dedication: Cathedral Church of St. Anne
Became a Cathedral in 1904

Belfast's Protestant Cathedral was consecrated in 1904, having been built in the years immediately preceding it.  One of the most notable features of the exterior is the massive Celtic Cross (pictured left).  The interior is very attractive for such a modern Cathedral, with arcaded vaulting and many of the other trappings of much earlier Cathedrals.

The Cathedral is also quite ornate for a Protestant church with some excellent stained glass and mosaic work.  Unfortunately the small park just outside the Cathedral seems to be the haunt of slightly threatening drunks making it not the nicest part of Belfast to linger around.
