  • Beautiful building regardless of your faith; Glasgow Cathedral presents an invaluable insight into the city's history and is well worth a visit. The Gothic architecture is even more stunning in person, and there are a number of artifacts and historic areas of the building that are accompanied by descriptions.
  • An absolutely stunning example of the respect and adoration for our Savior. So much love and attention to show the risen Savior. Such beauty but nothing compared to what He has prepared for us.
