Little bit about St. Mary’s Church
The St. Mary’s Church is one of the largest cathedrals in Sri Lanka. The Church is located in the Grand Street of Negombo town. The architecture of this ancient church is spectacular; it demonstrates the cultural amalgamation of the European practice with Sri Lankan Art. The Church was styled with columns and plain walls, the ceilings painted with alabaster images of many saints. During the 20th century, Negombo (the little Rome) was influenced greatly by the Portuguese and the St. Mary’s Church is an example. The pink exterior of the church gives a unique look and gives a peace of mind. The St. Mary’s Church is one of must see places in Negombo. The Church has its own beauty and attracts a lot of tourists.
