St Paul's Cathedral from the south

St. Paul's Cathedral is an Anglican cathedral in London, England. Construction began in 604 by Mellitas, Bishop of the East Saxons. In 962 and 1087 the cathedral burnt down and was built again. Before today's version of the cathedral there were four others but they also burnt down.

Today's cathedral is made of limestone. It was built after the Great Fire of London in 1666. Its architect was Sir Christopher Wren. He designed a further 50 churches, almost all in the City of London. St. Paul's Cathedral is a major tourist destination.
