Saint Patrick’s Cathedral

I haven’t been to many places but out of all the cities I’ve visited and all the places I’ve seen, Saint Patrick’s Cathedral is the most beautiful, unique and peaceful place on my list.

I became speechless the moment I walked into the cathedral, it is breathtakingly beautiful and calm and the people inside were so quiet and respectful. No matter what your religion is, this place is a must see!

The Cathedral It is located on the 5th avenue in Midtown Manhattan, New York City. It was built in the 1800’s by Irish workers and its construction took 21 years. The architecture is beautiful and inspiring from both inside and out. The building is made of brick and covered in marble, it’s decorated Neo-Gothic style, the windows are stained-glass and the ceilings are high. It’s so quiet and peaceful inside. The church has 19 bells, around 2800 stained-glass pannels and 2400 seats. It is a piece of New York City history and it’s also a getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city.

It is a great experience and its doors are always open for New Yorkers and tourists, you should definitely visit this place when you’re in New York.
