Stained glass windows

The Cathedral has twenty beautiful stained glass windows, sent to be made between 1883 and 1920, in London workshops representative of the Gothic-Renaissance style. These pour light and life within the Church, as well as decorate all of the walls.

Stained glass windows behind the altar

The altar is illuminated from behind at dawn by three stained glass windows (facing East) depicting the life of Saint Paul, patron of the Church. At the other end of the Cathedral, the Baptistery, facing West, is also surrounded by three stained glass windows that receive the evening light.

The remaining fourteen stained glass windows cover the lateral walls and depict various spiritual messages, all of them sent to be made and donated by the most representative families of the British community of those years, either in an individual or collective manner, in memory of loved ones. The technical quality of these works stands out as an example in Chile.
