St. Paul's Cathedral, dedicated to the worship of St. Paul, has the compact and massive structure typical of Baroque classicism. It was built by architect Sir Christopher Wren, completed in 1708 and later modified to suit the tastes of five English monarchs. To admire its beauty and discover the history, visitors can take advantage of a fantastic multimedia guide that includes photographs, historical videos (including the filming of the wedding of Charles and Diana) and testimonies of the people who work there today, such as the pastor and the director of the music conservatory.
The Golden Gallery
It is the smallest of the three tunnels and extends around the highest point of the outer part of the cathedral (85.4 meters), 530 hail from the ground floor.
At 111.3 meters high, the dome of St. Paul's Cathedral is one of the largest domes in the world. Among its arches were placed mosaics of saints and prophets between 1864 and 1888. The frescoes depicting the life of St. Paul were painted between 1715 and 1719 by the painter James Thornhill.
The Stone Gallery
It is one of two galleries located above the Whispering Gallery surrounding the exterior of the cathedral.
The Whispering Gallery
It is the lowest of the tunnels, "only" 30.2 meters high. The name "gallery of whispers" comes from the fact that by whispering a word next to the wall, you can hear it from anywhere nearby.
Exhibition "Oculus: an eye into St Paul's"
The new exhibition dedicated to the history of the cathedral dusts off centuries of London history, bringing to light the events of the Great Fire of 1666, which destroyed much of the city, including the church that preceded the construction of the cathedral. It was then that St Paul became an important model of hope for the population.
