From the Middle Ages when Truro was an important port and one of Cornwall's stannary towns for assaying and stamping tin and copper from the Cornish mines, to its current status as the county's main administrative and commercial centre, the city of Truro has a proud and distinctive identity. This extraordinary history is embodied in the many fine buildings that have shaped the city.

Truro in 50 Buildings explores the history of this rich and vibrant community through a selection of its greatest architectural treasures. From the Gothic Revival cathedral to the beautifully refurbished Hall for Cornwall (now a successful performing arts and entertainment venue), this fascinating study celebrates Truro's architectural heritage in a new and accessible way. Local historian Christine Parnell guides the reader on a tour of the city’s historic buildings and modern architectural marvels.
