SAINT PETER'S CATHEDRAL

The cathedral on Likoma Island is a wonder of architecture and engineering especially as it is at odds with the vernacular architecture in Malawi. In 1903 the foundation stone was laid by Gerard Trower, an Anglican Bishop from Yorkshire, England. Construction was finished in 1911 and the cathedral was consecrated by Bishop Thomas Cathrew Fisher who continued as Bishop of Nyasaland until his death in 1923.

It attracts visitors from all over the world, some for religious reasons and others simply to marvel at the impressive building, materials were imported from many different countries to complete the cathedral.

We can organise a tour around the cathedral for you to see it for yourself.
