Not a church fan or an architecture fan, but this was well worth seeing. The carvings are amazing. Apparently the acoustics are great too, but I didn't get to check that our. Be sure to walk up to the front for a close look at the artistry.

Main church for Catholicism on PEI - beautiful interior, esp. the rose stained glass window. Quiet and peaceful place for prayer and thinking.

Not going to lie, I'm not really into visiting churches. Don't get me wrong, most of them are beautiful (and PEI has a lot of picturesque churches), but I just feel some type of way about going in there to take picture and not to worship. Go if you're into it, but I wouldn't make it a priority personally.

We did a walking tour of Charlottetown and liked this Church. Very similar to a lot of European Churches on a smaller scale. The interior and the stained glass works are lovely. We took our grandchildren as they had never seen anything like this and they enjoyed the visit. Well worth a walk through.

Considering Canada isn't that old of a country, this church has a lot to offer. The interior and the stained glass are remarkable. To just sit and take in the ambience is a very serene experience.

We got some extra time and decided to explore Charlottetown downtown a bit though originally we didn't have a plan for it. Charlottetown downtown is small and easy to cover in a short time. One of the places we stopped by in our downtown tour was St. Dustan basilica. The church itself is nice both from the inside and outside... More

Reminded me of some of the majestic beautiful churches that I have seen in my travels (like in Europe and Ecuador).

Loved everything there was even a sign of welcome to the Maasdam passengers, no fees just prayer. You could visit the church without limits.

Very beautiful inside and out. We were able to go inside and look around and take pictures. Located in the city center so one does not need to drive far to see this beautiful landmark.
