Overview

The imposing Dome of St. Paul'St paul|s cathedral has been a symbol of London not least during the Blitz of the second world war when it stood framed by the fires raging in the city. A church has stood on the site since the 7c. and the present building, a masterpiece of Christopher Wren, was completed in 1708 after 32 years of work. The impressive interior contains mementos and monuments to many of Britain's heroes including Nelson, Wellington and Churchill. The famous Whispering Gallery is well worth the climb.

    Colla famiglia mi sono recato oggi a visitare la cattedrale di Saint Paul a Londra (per chi volesse raggiungerla in metropolitana c'è proprio la fermata omonima). Abbiamo visto la navata centrale, la cupola (fra le più grandi al mondo) e l'altare centrale facendo uso della guida elettronica che ti consegnano all'ingresso. Poi abbiamo iniziato la salita dei 510 gradini (attenzione che gli ultimi sono un po' impegnativi) che ci ha portato alla Golden Gallery che si trova quasi alla sommità della cattedrale e dalla quale di può ammirare un panorama eccezionale di Londra (a 360° visto che si possono scattare foto da tutte le posizioni). Dopo la discesa abbiamo visitato la cripta dove c'erano le tombe di diversi personaggi inglesi. Consiglio vivamente la visita per la bellezza della chiesa e la veduta panoramica (una delle migliori di Londra). Se si fa il biglietto famiglia si risparmia!

    Excellent and the tour guide Olga was knowledgeable. The climb to the very top and standing on the open outside viewing gallery is not for the faint-hearted but what a view of London. I have lived in London all my life, first time into St.Pauls, I never realised the history that is there. Gotta go again.
