ST. GILES' CATHEDRAL
Full dedication: Cathedral Church of St. Giles
Became a Cathedral in ?
The original Cathedral dates to late 14th Century and is crowned with a typically Scottish "crown of thorns" spire.
John Knox, who lived just down the road preached here. Like many Scottish Cathedrals it ceased to function as such at the Reformation and was split into a number of chapels.
However, today it functions as a tourist draw and a good halway point between Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood.
