Located in the heart of Melbourne, on the edge of Federation Square, is St. Paul's Cathedral; the seat of the Anglican Archdiocese of the city. It was built on the site of the first Christian service held in the city, which also happened to have been a corn market (until 1848). The first religious structure built here was St.Paul's Parish church, which was demolished in 1885 to make way for the current structure. At the time that the new Cathedral was completed, St.Paul's was the tallest building in Melbourne ( until the building boom in the 20th century). While photographs of the interior of this impressive edifice are allowed, you must purchase a permit to do so, first.
As with all Cathedrals, side chapels often competed with the main altar in grandeur.
