A city of bridges and of the famous clock Big Ben, London is also a city of majestic palaces and cathedrals. Of these, St. Paul’s Cathedral is not only the largest baroque building in England, but also the fifth church in the world in terms of size. This marvel of architecture would not be here today, if the ravaging fire from September 1666 would not have destroyed most of the city and, of course, the settlement on which the Cathedral is built today.
St. Paul’s Cathedral has a history spanning over a thousand years. It is one of the places most popular among the tourists, visited annually by thousands of people. The Anglican Bishops, Queen Victoria, Queen Elizabeth II, the Prime Ministers Gordon Brown and David Cameron are among the parishioners of this church.
St. Paul’s Cathedral is the work of the famous architect Sir Christopher Wren and it represents one of the most famous British baroque churches in the world, the fourth one built on the current site dating back to the eighteenth century. The cathedral was always located on Ludgate Hill, a place that seems to have had in antiquity a religious destination (a temple dedicated to the goddess Diana).
The work on the current cathedral began in 1675 and was completed on October 20, 1708. The rapidity with which it was built, and its artistic and architectural value, reflects the concern of the five reigning monarchs during which time it was made. Saint Paul’s Cathedral became the spiritual center of the entire British nation. It is the place where there were celebrated or commemorated the most important events in England since 1697, the year when the first religious service was committed here, namely the funerals of the Duke of Wellington, Lord Nelson and of Sir Winston Churchill, the gratitude religious service for ending of the First World War, or the wedding of Lady Diana Spencer and Charles, the prince of Wales.
