The Cathedral is a religious building and a source of popularity in Stronghold Crusader.

The cathedral produces a priest, who spreads blessing any townsfolk he encounters. A cathedral is also the only building that can produce monks, defensive units which have good combat rates but they are slow and weak. Cathedrals are very expensive and they need the largest area in the game to erect, but its presence supports you with +2 popularity every month.

Like all religious buildings, the cathedral will display brief, comical information about peasant weddings when selected.
