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. Certain dress codes apply, as it is a religious center for many people. Put St George's cathedral into our Freetown trip planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
