History

Its construction is fascinating with its amazing bowstring trusses where architects come to view this beautiful structure. The iconic St. Peter’s Cathedral Basilica is a stunning gothic Victorian church built in 1881. You can pay tribute to the fallen soldiers the local heroes for those who served in the World Wars and today at the Boer War Statue.
