At first glance, this really feels incompatible with the image of the church in mind, and the style is very non-mainstream. This is the Metropolitan Cathedral of Liverpool City Cathedral. The silvery look and the central thorn-like rounded roof are a very modern design. It is said that CNN has rated it as one of the ugliest top ten buildings in the world, and the locals have given it the nickname: "Paddy's Wigwam" (Paddy is a nickname for Irish Catholics). A small circular Catholic church in England, which began construction in 1850, was only partially completed due to insufficient funds. The construction was then interrupted for more than 60 years, and the final completion was in 1967, and the entire process took more than 100 years.
Inside the church, the faint light from the patio creates a mysterious space. You can see the bright colors of the inner hall. If the sun shines through the colored glass at this time, there will be different light and shadows of red, blue, green, purple, etc., which is very beautiful. In addition, in 1982, the then Pope John Paul II visited, and it was active as a Catholic center in Liverpool. Now there are Chinese people who call it a hot pot church. It is said that hundreds of unlucky children are thrown into the gloomy basement examination of this church every year. .
