St. Ann's Academy Chapel

At the heart of St. Ann's Academy is the chapel pictured here. It's the oldest part of the building and was erected in 1858 as St. Andrew's Church. It is Victoria's oldest religious building. In 1886 it was moved across Humboldt Street to its current location and integrated into the academy. It has since been fully restored and is a lovely little chapel. The two ladies visible at the bottom of the photo are engaged in ongoing maintenance and restoration.
