Metropolitan Cathedral


The Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King is the Catholic cathedral of Liverpool. Its foundation stone was laid in 1933 between Brownlow Hill and Mount Pleasant. It was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens but the project was redesigned and ended with a design of Sir Frederic Gibberd.
The cathedral has a circular nave that remarks its modernity. The high altar can be seen by the 2,300 people that fit in it. The tower of the cathedral is 101 high, but the original desigh was even higher.
Several chapels can be found circling the nave, each of them is different of the others.
