Longtower St, Londonderry BT48 6QQ, UK – 028 7126 1946
INSPIRING! From an arts, archeology, and cultural standpoint the Long Tower is a hidden gem. This is an active sanctuary so be respectful (and leave a few pounds). Highlights include the site of St. Columba's original altar. In 1908 the church was renovated so you will find transitional arts and crafts influences in the magnificent stained glass (these are replete with visual references to Derry and St. Columcille, look out for oak leaves and acorns, and doves), and in the intimate baptistery.
I've always loved the long tower church Built on the site of the old monastery of st Columba and his monks
