Absolutely gorgeous architecture. Inspiring to view and visit. The ceiling is amazing and the doors to the crypt are from a lost era and absolutely stunning!

Unexpectedly grand neighbor to our hotel the Queen E. Lovely interior with many architectural details to appreciate. Graceful, peaceful, beautiful space. Special in a city of many fine churches.

If you don't have the time to visit St Peter in Rome, you can have a good taste of it by visiting the Mary Queen of the World Cathedral. This Montreal cathedral is much smaller but still have lots of beautiful features as of St Peter's. During my visit in June 2014, I was inside the Cathedral at least 3... More
