The city of Cork is built on River Lee which splits into a pair of channels at city's western end. The city centre is divided by the two channels. At the eastern end they reconverge - the quays and docks along Lee's banks there lead outwards to Lough Mahon and Cork Harbour, one of the largest natural harbours in the world.
The city's nickname "the rebel city" originates from the support for Yorkist cause during the 15th century Wars of the Roses in England. Corkonians often refer to their city as "the real capital" in reference to its role during the Irish Civil War as the centre of anti-treaty forces.
Cork features notable buildings that originate from Medieval to Modern periods. The sole notable remnant of Medieval era is Cork's Red Abbey. There are a couple of cathedrals in the city: Saint Mary's and Saint Fin Barre's. Saint Patrick's Street is the city's main street which was remodelled during the mid-2000s. It is the main shopping thoroughfare, known for the architecture of buildings along a pedestrian-friendly route.
