I particularly like the stained glass, and went animal spotting on the many panes.
The stained glass gives an ethereal feel to light. Behind the cathedral is the necropolis, where wealthy Victorians were buried. This city of the dead dominates the skyline.
The patron saint of Glasgow and is St Mungo and images of his alleged miracles are seen around the cathedral. They are remembered by the following rhyme:
- Here is the bird that never flew
- Here is the tree that never grew
- Here is the bell that never rang
- Here is the fish that never swam
