The Grand Cathedral is a Gothic style european Cathedral, the most reconizable's things are the two tall towers that domine the facade, the cathedral have some walls and wathctowers, that make the cathedral more similar to a castle than a church, the design is not very inspired, it seems like a mix of some European Gothic Cathedrals, but for the design of the towers and the style of the facade seems similar at the Tours Cathedral in France and the Quito Cathedral in Ecuador.
- The real position of the Grand Cathedral is unknown, Sam claims that is somewhere in eastern Europe, possibly in Poland, but there isn't a of this aspect there, the only Cathedrals that are similar are the Tours Cathedral and the Quito Cathedral, which are located respectively in France and Ecuador.
- Another bizzarre thing is that in the Corridor of the Death there's some Finland Flags, which complicates finding the position of the Cathedral.
- The interior of the Cathedral is too small than the exterior apparence.
- A very bizzarre thing is that the Grand Cathedral is located in the middle of nowere, the only near building is the Corridor of the death, this is weird because a cathedral usually take place in a big city.
