Each month we select one of the most famous iconic buildings in the world and explain a bit about why it deserves to be in the list…

London's most iconic building St Paul's Cathedral was designed by English architect Sir Christopher Wren.

Sitting at the top of Ludgate Hill, the highest point in the City of London, its famous dome is one of the world's largest, measuring nearly 112 meters high.

The original church on the site was founded in the year 604 AD. Work on the present English Baroque church began in the 17th Century by Christopher Wren as part of a major rebuilding program after the Great Fire of London.

Wren started working on St Paul's in 1668, his designs for the cathedral taking a decade to complete and the actual construction taking a further 40 years. St Paul's has played an integral part of London life ever since - as a dominant element in the city's skyline, as a centre for tourism and religious worship, and most recently as a focal point for anti-capitalist protests.
