Walked by as I was exploring downtown. Beautiful church, felt like I was back in Europe. It had two large organs, when I walked by on Sunday during the service you could hear the organs playing from outside and they sounded beautiful.

We were impressed with the architecture of this great Basilica. It was an amazing experience to witness a wedding here. The stained glass and height of steeples is worth viewing. The acoustics were not great as there was echo from the hard surfaces but that is a minor point. I recommend paying a visit if you have the time.

We were staying across the street from the Basilica (at the Great George), which gave us the advantage of knowing when it was quiet. It is expansive and beautiful inside - definitely worth a few minutes of exploration.

Lovely church on a meaningful day for us. solitude and quiet. Lovely stained glass, what else can you say about a church but this has to be 100 characters to fit.

Attended Sunday mass where travelers & parishioners all received the same warm welcome from the rector, Fr. Gallant.

This church is beautiful! And best of all, it's not packed with a herd of tourist, so you can take your time and explore this church. Take a few minutes of your time and visit it.

If you love to visit old churches, you won't want to miss this one. This is a Roman Catholic Church. It is very large. The architecture inside this church is amazing and a must see for church lovers.

Beautiful church/basilica that looms proudly over the city. The Gothic art & architecture is stunning; the stone beautiful; & stained glass fabulous. Plus, the 'backstory' is interesting...from Father MacEachern's boat to transport Mass kit & vestments ...to the destruction in the 1913 fire ...to its resurrection (like a Phoenix) in 1919

Gorgeous basilica, we went for mass on Sunday and there were quite a few people from different countries attending. The artwork inside is quite nice and the priest is very welcoming. Well worth the visit!
