The present building was consecrated in 1197. Glasgow Cathedral is the best preserved example of a large church to have survived from the medieval period in Scotland.
Glasgow Cathedral is the best preserved example of a large church to have survived the Reformation, and has one of the finest post-war collections of stained-glass windows to be found in Britain.
