27 St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Victoria, Canada

You will not be the first person to be surprised and perhaps confused to see another church named St. Andrew’s less than two blocks from the cathedral. No, they are not affiliated. This is St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, built in 1890. The parish was founded by Scottish immigrants in the mid-19th century. Naturally, they dedicated the church to their country’s patron saint. The design also hints of a Scottish castle. The most interesting feature is this corner tower with four turrets and conical roofs. From here, turn west on Broughton Street and you will soon be back at the waterfront. This ends your walking tour of Old Town. You will need transportation to reach the remaining sites to visit.
