An old popular Liverpool song goes, “If you want a cathedral, we’ve got one to spare.” Yes, you read correctly. Liverpool has two cathedrals, an Anglican and a Catholic.
THE Liverpool Anglican CathedralEast Britain’s largest religious building and we’re sure you’ll be struck by the size of its exterior architecture. The interior is spectacular and for the view it offers from its tower, it is worth paying admission.
There Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King is Catholic and, like the other cathedral, was built in the 20th century. It was originally intended to be as large as the Anglican Cathedral, but lack of funds prevented its construction. The one you will see today has a curious circular shape, with the altar in the center and surrounded by amazing multicolored windows..

The entrance to Chinatown could not be more spectacular, its arch of 15 meters with neither more nor less than 200 sculpted dragonsleaves no one indifferent. Moreover, it is the largest ceremonial arch outside of China.😲
On the main street, Nelson Street, you will find a few restaurants and a Chinese supermarket. Other than that, there’s not much to see and, in our opinion, the most beautiful thing is the arch at the entrance to the neighborhood.
St. Lukes Church
To end see Liverpoolwe recommend that you visit the site St. Lukes Church 19th century, which will seem normal to you at first glance.
However, as soon as you approach the windows, you will immediately understand that “something is wrong”…😏 and that’s it… only the exterior walls remainSince was bombed during World War II and it is for this reason that it is known as the “bombed church”.
