St Andrews Cathedral Fife Google Street View
As the Google Street view below shows the Cathrdral is located at the Eastern end of meeting of North and South Street in St Andrews.
St Andrews Cathedral dominated the history of the medieval church in Scotland from its construction in the 12th century until the Protestant Reformation in 1560.
Scotland’s largest and most magnificent medieval church, the cathedral was the seat of Scotland’s leading bishops and archbishops. It was used for worship since the 8th century AD, when the relics of St Andrew, Scotland’s patron saint, are said to have been brought here.
The cathedral buildings are surrounded by a graveyard, and encircled by the most complete and imposing monastic enclosure walls in Scotland. Even in its ruinous state the cathedral remains a prominent landmark, the focus of the three medieval streets of St Andrews, and highly visible from the sea.
