Build around a 1000 years ago St. Giles’ cathedral is by far one of the oldest man made structures in Edinburgh. St Giles was completed in 1120 and was part of the church of John Knox, the famous Christian protestant reformist. The cathedral is often referred to as the Cradle of Presbyterianism in historian circles. Some of the most impressive features of the St Giles’ include a beautiful stained glass window and a Rieger organ installed in 1992.
The Cathedral is situated halfway up the Royal Mile between Holyroodhouse and Edinburgh Castle. If you are thinking of visiting you can take advantage of the many volunteer guides who are more than willing to answer any of your questions. If you do visit a donation of £1 is requested. Services are still held each day of the week at different times. St Giles is a must see for anyone visiting Edinburgh
