3. Outing: Emmanuel Cathedral

Date: Sat 21 September 2013
Time:  2.30pm - 4pm

  The beautiful Emmanuel Cathedral is  part of Durban's landscape, tucked rather snuggly into Cathedral Street against the prominent flyover of the N3 highway just as it descends into the centre of town and the dual streets of Pine and Dr A B Xuma – one up and one down. Hard to believe that when the cathedral was built over 100 years ago that it lay in the tranquil outskirts of town. 

The Roman Catholic Emmanuel Cathedral is an incredibly beautiful building, designed by South African architect Street Wilson, its cross carved out of Carrara marble all the way from Italy, a gift from the Empress Eugenie, wife of Napoleon III of France. No amount of noise and hustle could detract from the sheer magnificence of the architectural features. It makes for fantastic photo moments and is one of a handful of religious buildings in the city that inspire. 



See you on Tuesday, 17 September 2013 at 7pm!
