This cathedral is beautiful. We happened upon it accidentally. We stopped in to get out of the rain. There was no admission fee. There is a small shop inside. I wish we could have been there for Sunday mass. Definitely worth a visit!

If you are into old churches, this is a must look see. The 19th century church, has been kept in wonderful shape, and the outside statues cap off a great domed roof.

You will be impressed by the sculptures on the top front of the Cathedral and the elegantly painted ceilings and wall. A large Cathedral with regular mass and prayer services, there is also a Christian store, though not as big as the one of the Oratory of St Joseph, prices are more affordable. NOTE: Marie-Reine du Monde means Mary Queen... More

Yes, visit Notra Dame, but don't exclude this church from your visit. You will be blessed by the artwork and the Bernini Baldachin. You might say, "Am I in St. Peter's?" Beautifully framed at the back of the cathedral is the statue of Mary, Queen of the World. With wonders to behold in this church, don't forget to look up... More

Old architecture, very big and colorful. Amazingly beautiful. History that speaks for itself. Cathedral made as St. Peter cathedral in Rome.

The cathedral's architecture is inspired by St. Peter's Basilica in Rome, both outside and inside. As in Rome, the gigantic proportions are (intentionally) overwhelming in scale, so this makes the building feel hard and cold. The location on the edge of the central business district, with little street life around, reinforces the image of coldness.

We happened in the middle of an organ concert. The elegant austerity of the interior and the ample sound of the music made for an unforgettable experience. The Cathedral should be listed up there with more notable ones in France and Spain. Make sure you take photos of the outside: the statues are impressive.

The Mary Queen of the World cathedral was stunning, even on a frigid December day. It would be great if there was a little more information about the church from a visitors point of view.
