Cathedral of the Good Shepherd
Important centre for Southeast Asian Catholicism
What we say:
A Catholic church has occupied this spot since the 1830s, but it wasn't until 1847 that the Spanish, Portuguese and French parishes unified and built the impressive Church of the Good Shepherd.
Its status was elevated to cathedral in 1888 and, save for a period during World War II when it served as a makeshift hospital, it's been an important centre for Catholicism in Southeast Asia ever since.
It is currently the seat of the Archbishop of Singapore and holds regular Sunday Mass.
