The Catherdral is well worth looking at and the history is very interesting as is the history of the whole town. It is has a lovely feel and though extremely modern has a holy serenity which is lovely.

It was a very simple cathedral but very serene. It had a lot of information inside about the earthquake and also the history of the cathedral

We spent a day walking about Napier while touring New Zealand and happened on this Anglican church. It suffered heavy damage in the 1931 earthquake and was rebuilt to "modern" standards. It is accessible with an attendant "on duty" to answer questions and offer brochures....More
