The Church survived the Halifax Harbour Explosion during WWI, but the story goes a man in the church was blown through a window, and his reflection is still there today, and that each time the window is replaced it comes back.. Eerily enough, the reflection is very plain... More

Come in the doors of this unassuming building on the Grand Parade, and you are immediately immersed in the history of Halifax and Nova Scotia. The sheer grandeur of the space - illuminated by the sun through the magnificent stained glass - provides an incredible ambience for the oldest building (1750) in Halifax and among the oldest churches in Canada....

This is a very old Anglican Church with lots of history. Request a guided tour, it is very interesting, with lots of history. Also see the stained glass window with the shape of a man's head that happened during the Halifax explosion.

We only had a few minutes to pop our heads in during a tour. We went back on a different day and they were closed - somewhat disappointing but what we did see was beautiful.

A must visit for those who want to experience an important part of Halifax history. The church is beautiful and a quiet place to reflect and take in the many beautiful stained glass windows. Near Provence House so visit both for sure.

Located right in the centre of downtown, this is another attractive building which is well worth a visit whilst in Halifax. Constructed out of timber it has managed to survive the ravages of time. Worth a stop as you wander around the city.

St. Paul's Church, built in 1750's, is one of the oldest buildings in town, but that wasn't why I wanted to visit it. It was easy to find as it occupies one end of a large public square up a few blocks from the waterfront. As I reached the front of the Church, I asked a local person coming out... More

Conveys the history of the time. Beautiful stain glass. Organ pipes are blue and white, most unusual. Worth a brief visit.
