St. Peter's Cathedral, Likoma Island

#6 of 49 in Things to do in Malawi
Must see · Church · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Admire a church in the middle of an island, surrounded by baobabs and mango trees, tropical houses, and dirt streets at St. Peter's Cathedral. Seeming almost out of place, the cathedral is made of sturdy blocks of rock and materials shipped from far away. See the stained glass windows and European architectural influences reflecting in the features of the building. You'll get a sense of the cathedral's strategic value since its construction in the colonial days of the early 20th century.
