On one of the highest points in Melbourne an intersection of churches competes for opulence, but none can compete with a catholic cathedral.
We visited in March, the first few days of autumn, and the weather was perfect. Blue skies, leaves still green before they turn shades of red and yellow and brown.
Inside the stained glass competes with the gold trimmings and marble features for attention, losing the battle as soon as the organ starts.
Religious or not, the cathedral offers tourists a walk through catholic history in Melbourne and an unforgettable experience.
