We came across this during our walk around downtown and were very pleased with the beauty and history of this building. Sunday mass had just finished and the people were welcoming and friendly.

This cathedral is one of the beautiful cathedral in north America. If you visit on sunday there is a big chance to meet a young couple wich are going to be married. Inside you can see a lot of sculptures.

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.
