St Giles Cathedral

John Knox directed the Scottish Reformation from this beautiful, Gothic church. Inside, you can see a stone marking the place where Jenny Geddes, a local woman, threw her stool at a preacher who tried to read from an English prayer book in 1637! Don't miss the Thistle Chapel inside the cathedral and spend some time looking at its amazing rib-vaulted roof and carved heraldic canopies.
