I guess I'm a little biased about this place as I got married here a few years back, so with it being that type of day, the cathedral was at it's best. It's also one of the few places that is well looked after. However...More

Worth the hike up to the cathedral. It's out of character with the rest of Kampala - almost European in design. Interesting windows showing the martyrs.

Our driver took us to this church. There was a special event going on so we were unable to tour the church. We walked the grounds, took a few photos and left.
