Attend a mass at St George's cathedral, which stands as a landmark to the British colonial rule of Sierra Leone. Still in use today, the 1828 church beckons locals, who see the building as their spiritual haven in the heart of an urban environment. If you attend when church is in session, you may be treated to a performance by the choir and a view of the intricate stained-glass windows over the altar.

  • You can look around inside and outside and sign a guestbook that has been around for decades and has been signed by royalty!  more »
  • Here, I found that the church was made of swashes. It is a cathedral and one of the most magnificent churches in West Africa. It was built in the 1820s, but it was very good. Now, it is the church of British church. Here, I saw a large group of worshippers burying. So I didn't go into the church. But there was a church worker who teased me outside the church and introduced the church's background and work.
