Structure was started in 1913 and work continued until 1919. The steeples of St Dunstan's Basilica tower above mostly all other buildings in Charlottetown. Interior is grand with high ceilings and Italian marble. Certainly a must see place for those interested in old architecture.

We got married in this church so I am Biased, but it is beautiful and worth the visit. The paintings on the ceiling and a trip up the tower are a must see.

I have been in this Church many times. It is absolutely beautiful inside. I love all the cherubs up in the corners and ceiling.

Very nice basilica with gothic spire architecture. If you're in Charlottetown, it's worth checking out.

Visited this Catholic Church twice in last 6 years and is very beautiful inside. Its location is only 2 blocks from the waterfront. A MUST SEE if you are visiting Charlottetown.

This is one of the most churches that I have ever stepped foot in. The architecture is unbelievable. The stained glass and the huge pipe organ are so beautiful.

The Church was built in 1896 of Wallace stone which gives it a soft brown color. The interior is English Gothic and reminiscent of some of the great cathedrals of Europe. The stained glass windows and magnificent organ are worth seeing. The Basilica has been designated a National Historic Site of Canada.
