A guided tour of St Dominic’s Priory – an outstanding example of gothic revival and stripped gothic architecture, virtually unchanged since construction. The Priory is described by Heritage NZ as "one of New Zealand’s most significant Victorian buildings. The innovative style and method of construction have few parallels in the early history of New Zealand architecture."
The Otago Daily Times in a 1990 editorial commented "in two or three more generations, the Priory will stand as a symbol of a way of life as remote to our descendants as fortified castles are to us".
Meet at the the corner of Smith and Tennyson Streets.
