Age of Empires Series Wiki

The Cathedral is an unconstructable building in Age of Empires II. In campaigns, it is often used as an aesthetic building for large cities, but usually as the focal point of an objective. The Cathedral resembles the original British Wonder, though considerably larger. Cathedrals cannot be built, but are available in the Scenario Editor.
