The twin-towered Roman Catholic cathedral is just as enormous as Namirembe, but not nearly as spectacular. Nevertheless, it has great historical significance: in the transept is a memorial to the Uganda Martyrs (dozens of Ugandan Christians burnt or hacked to death by Kabaka Mwanga II in 1885 and 1886 for refusing to renounce the white man’s religion); 22 Catholic victims, later declared saints, are enshrined in the stained-glass windows.
