The Cathedral Square is Christchurch’s main square and serves as a hangout for the people of the city. In the evening, the square comes alive and is bustling with street performers. While on your visit to the square, do check out the ruins of the Christchurch Cathedral. The cathedral was destroyed in the devastating earthquake of 2011. Another attraction is the Chalice. It is a large piece of modern sculpture in the form of an inverted cone and attracts a lot of photographers. There is also a huge board of chess at the square.
