Notable for its crown-like spire that adorns the Edinburgh skyline, St Giles' Cathedral is part of the city's iconic Royal Mile. Originally founded in 1124, the cathedral's current incarnation was believed to have been built sometime during the 14th century, although its patron St Giles is said to have lived some 600 years before. Not only does the cathedral possess some remarkable interior features like the stained glass windows, but the Roof Top Tour affords visitors one of the very best views of the Royal Mile away from Arthur's Seat. The cathedral holds services every day of the week, including a special musical performance every Sunday evening.
