Its architectural style is a transition from Romanesque to Gothic. The upper church was built between the 13th and 14 the centuries.

The Irish city and port of Cork is located in the south west of Ireland and is the second largest city in Ireland and the third most populous city on the island of Ireland. It is located on the banks of the River Lee which divides into two channels as it approaches the western edge of the city. To the east of the city, where the two channels meet again and continue to flow on to Lough Mahon and Cork Harbour, are the city's quays. The city itself is located on the island that is created by the River Lee when it splits and then merges again.
Architecturally, Cork has a number of notable buildings that date back to medieval period through to the present day, although the only surviving medieval building is the Red Abbey. The city's two cathedrals are popular tourist attractions. St. Mary's Cathedral, sometimes called the North Cathedral, is the Catholic cathedral and work began on it in 1808 with its tower added in the 1860's. St. Fin Barre's Cathedral is the Protestant cathedral in the city and was built on the site of an earlier chapel. Work began on this cathedral in 1862 and was completed in 1879 under the direction of the architect William Burges.
