We visited this Basilica while we were walking the Historic Row. It is a beautiful church inside and out. It is downtown and it is a easy walk to Victoria Park and lots of places to eat.

absolutely beautiful. You don`t have to be a church going person to appreciate the beauty of the building. Never have I seen anything like it. From the marble to the huge pipe organ, to the carvings, it is truly a must see. I just wish I could have attended a mass while I was I Charlottetown. Also cannot believe the... More

Unbelievable beauty and charm in Charlottetown's largest church. I got a strong sense of wonderment and spirituality while inside this magnificent structure.

Who would expect such a wonderful building in a city of only 440,000 people? It is beautiful inside and out. The stone glass windows are unusual in that they are not all the classic scenes that you normally find. This is a great place to see and visit.

Charming small church in heart of Charlottetown just down from the town centre. Very nice stained glass windows. External architecture in French Gothic style. Well worth a look inside. Recommended

We visited on a Monday and waited until the midday Mass was finished - good to see so many coming out. A lovely church and loved the stained glass.

St Dunstan's is a beautiful church in downtown Charlottetown. It is worth stopping in for a visit. The Church was rebuilt in the early 20th century after a fire and is in a French-revival style that will remind you of many older churches in Quebec and French-Ontario.

How great it was to have this wonderful building within walking distance from where we were staying. Beautiful building. Enjoyed our talk with the priest after mass.

There aren't many of these. Typically there is a Basilica or a Cathedral, but this is both. St.Dunstan's is a beauty- certainly not what you would expect to see in a small city of about 440,000. The architecture inside and out is superb, and it is truly an inspiration to visit this church. Amazing, particularly for me who has been... More
