It's well worth the time to visit this church. The architecture is beautiful! They don't build them like this today.

This Basilica was breathtakingly beautiful both inside and out. The architecture is amazing and the artwork inside is a must see. I loved that it was open and you could just go in and sit if you wanted. It was so peaceful inside. Going there was easily one of the highlights of my visit to Charlottetown

A must see stop as you walk through Halifax. Stop on your way down to the park. It is a beautiful church with lots of history and stained glass windows. We just took a short look inside, but it is well worth the stop to admire this lovely architecture inside and out!

This was a beautiful church to stop in. The doors are typically open so take a peek on the inside. I will warm you. Do all your talking outside. Talking in the lobby echos into the sanctuary where people are sometimes praying. Great architecture and stain glass.

I wandered in to look at the basilica and was staring at the organ and other aspects of the space when several musicians setting up for mass graciously offered information about the space and some things to be sure to see. A lovely site that was most welcoming.

Once you walk in this church, you see all the spectacular stain glass, and the pews are old and worn, which adds character to them. You can see the care in the preservation of the church. It is in an historic part of the city, just off the Queen Street. I am not a very religious person. but once I... More

We spent the day in Charlottetown (first time in The Maritimes!) and had the chance to visit this beautiful church. Very impressive.
