The Roman Catholic, metropolitan cathedral in Edinburgh, an impressive building at the top of Leith Walk. After the previous Chapel at Blackfriars' Wynd had been burned down by a mob, the location for the new building, which opened in 1814, was considered more safe, due to its proximity to other buildings.

As well as regular services, hosts musical recitals, including concerts at the Fringe.
