    St. Patrick's Cathedral is not far from Fitzroy Gardens. We walk along Wellington Avenue from a 125-year-old Windsor Hotel in Melbourne for seven or eight minutes. The road is green and lush. Melbourne's downtown area is quite green. The church is connected with the nearby Fitzroy Garden. The famous Captain Cook's cabin is also in the garden, forming a beautiful scene. Point. Visiting St. Patrick's Cathedral does not require admission tickets. It is open from 9:00 to 17:00 every day. There are not many visitors here, so we can enjoy it quietly. Although the cathedral is less famous than Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris and Cologne Cathedral in Cologne and Shikai Sugar Cathedral in Spain, it is also the Cathedral of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Melbourne and Australia after all. The subtallest church should be extraordinary. Influenced by the Roman Catholic Church, it is a typical Renaissance Gothic building with three towering minarets above the church. It is said that the cathedral was designed by William Walder jqk William Wardell, a famous British architect, in 1863. It was officially opened in October 1897. The three minarets of the cathedral were completed in memory of the Catholic Church after nearly 80 years until 1939. It was built in Victoria for a hundred years. Entering the cathedral, the meticulous stained glass windows inside are very similar to the Cologne Cathedral, depicting the Bible and religious stories. The light is reflected through the stained glass windows to the dome, which is gorgeous and elegant. The huge marble pillars support the vault, showing extraordinary grace. Another point of view of the cathedral is a set of pipe organs and tall candlesticks on the altar, which are very gorgeous and beautiful. Walking to the church, there are two famous statues at the side door. On the left is Saint Catherine, a woman who took off the thorn circle she wore when Jesus was crucified. On the right, the statue of the saint in a monk's robe is the living Francisco. It is said that the mark of Saint Francisco is the only official mark recognized by the Holy See so far. Not necessarily. The famous side door has a staircase pool with some biblical sentences carved on the stone. On the top of the pool is a basin carved with a wolf. On the right side of the pool is the souvenir shop of the church. Along the shade, ahead is Fitzroy Gardens, one of the five gardens in Melbourne. The famous Captain Cook's cabin is in the corner of the garden. Traffic - "Take bus No. 35 longsdalestr. Stop and go east.

    Churches in the rain can be seen everywhere on the streets of Melbourne, almost in the architectural style of Gothic spires. Figs 1 to 5 are St. Patrick's Church, the highest Catholic Church in the southern hemisphere. The church is made of bluestone, with concave and convex facades, dark gray and dark colors, magnificent and striking, magnificent and solemn decoration, which fully reflects the architectural features of the Renaissance period. The interior of the church is beautifully decorated. The dome and window glass are brilliant and adopt the traditional Latin cross structure. One end of the main hall is the main altar, and the other end is a huge pipe organ. We visited the church on Sunday morning. It was at Mass and the choir was singing. It was inconvenient to disturb and take pictures inside the church. Figs 6 to 9 are Saint Paul's Cathedral opposite Federal Square. It is the earliest English Church in Melbourne. It was built in 1891 and added three minarets in 1932 to make it more magnificent. On the lawn on the side of the church was a statue of Matthew Flynd, the first pioneer to come to Australia.

    St. Patrick's Church is Melbourne's largest and highest Catholic Church in the southern hemisphere. The Gothic-style cathedral, mostly built of bluestone, was designed by the famous British architect Huadai. It was officially opened in October 1897, but the three minarets were not completed until 1939. The steeple is 105.8 meters high and the church is 92.25 meters deep. The stained glass windows and the huge organ in the church are all worth watching. The church is very large, there are many statues around it, and the green space is very beautiful.

    From the Capitol building, you can see an old church, St. Patricks Cathedral. There are two famous churches, one in Melbourne, Australia, and the other in Dublin, Ireland. Melbourne is also the largest and tallest Catholic Church in the southern hemisphere. This Gothic cathedral, mostly built of bluestone, was designed by the famous British architect Huadai. The church was so big that it couldn't be fully loaded into the camera. It had to run across the street to barely get a picture. Visits inside the church are free and can be photographed.

The church area is very large. You can have a close look at the complex sculptures and patterns on the building. There is also a small garden on the east side of the church. It is very quiet and full of flowers.

    It's a lovely church and monastery. It's worth visiting. It's located not far from Melbourne. It's the largest Catholic Church in Australia. It has many characteristics of Gothic architecture. The atmosphere in the church is very quiet. The light passes through the stained glass of the window and turns into a bunch of golden light to illuminate the whole cathedral.

    It is a Gothic Renaissance building with a slightly simpler appearance than the famous Gothic architecture. It is the highest Church in Australia and the bishop Church of the Catholic Diocese of Melbourne. The scale is very large and the decoration is very luxurious.
