The beautiful Emmanuel Cathedral is part of Durban’s landscape, tucked rather snuggly into Cathedral Street. Hard to believe that when the cathedral was built over 100 years ago that it lay in the tranquil outskirts of town. The Roman Catholic Emmanuel Cathedral is an incredibly beautiful building, designed by South African architect Street Wilson, its cross carved out of Carrara marble all the way from Italy, a gift from the Empress Eugenie, wife of Napoleon III of France.
