Aflată în City, centrul de afaceri al Londrei, Catedrala Saint Paul este opera lui Christopher Wren, cel mai mare arhitect englez St Paul's sits at the top of Ludgate Hill, the highest point in the City of London, and is the mother church of the Diocese of London. The present church dating from the late 17th century was built to an English Baroque design of Sir Christopher Wren Grifonul, simbol al oraşului, marchează intrarea în City. Monumentul din mijlocul Fleet Street, datează din anul 1880 The City of London adopted what are usually described as griffins as supporters for its coat of arms, and it marks its boundaries with statues of a single "griffin" carrying the City coat of arms at each road leading into the City of London. However, the City of London griffins are, in fact, heraldic dragons, with scaly bodies and wings, no feathers, and no eagle's beak. Fleet street, Peterborough Court

Slide 3: 

În urma cumplitului incendiu din anul 1666 Christopher Wren a reconstruit în zonă 52 de biserici. Christopher Wren a adăugat turnurile de pe faţada de vest abia în 1707 (avea deja 75 de ani) As King's Surveyor of Works (1669 – 1718), Christopher Wren had a hand in the rebuilding of more than 50 churches destroyed in the Great Fire of London. Meanwhile, he was evolving designs for Saint Paul's Cathedral, a work that occupied him until its completion in 1710.

Slide 4: 

Frontonul cu basoreliefuri reprezintă convertirea Sfântului Paul şi a fost realizat în anul 1706 The west front of St Paul's is dominated by a triangular relief: dramatic depiction of the cathedral's patron saint to Christianity (1706) by Francis Bird The architect of St Paul's, Sir Christopher Wren, was an extraordinary figure. Although he is now best known as an architect, he was also an astronomer, scientist and mathematician.

Slide 7: 

Coloanele care susţin porticul de apus sunt grupate câte două deşi Christopher Wren a dorit o singură colonadă The Cathedral's façade is fashioned with two tiers of paired Corinthian columns, French-style, framed by two towers influenced by Borromini's Roman Church of St. Agnese.

Slide 14: 

Mormântul lui Christopher Wren a fost marcat de o placă pe care scrie „cititorule, de cauţi monumentul său, priveşte în jur” Christopher Wren was the first person to be interred, in 1723: on the wall above his tomb in the crypt is written, "Lector, si monumentum requiris, circumspice" (Reader, if you seek his monument, look around you). În criptă sunt monumentele pentru omagierea marilor personalităţi şi a unor eroi foarte populari, cum este şi lordul Nelson Mormântul ducelui de Wellington

Slide 17: 

Galeria şoaptelor îşi datorează numele acusticii speciale care face ca şoaptele să creeze ecou de jur împrejurul domului The Whispering Gallery runs around the inside of the dome 99 feet (30.2 m) above the cathedral floor. It is reached by 259 steps from ground level. It gets its name because of the acoustic effects peculiar to domes; a whisper against its wall at any point is audible to a listener with an ear held to the wall at any other point around the gallery. A low murmur is equally audible.
