Attended the noon mass. It was lovely. The church is beautiful. Love the stained glass windows as the afternoon light shone through them.

Fists visit since the extensive renovation and like every work of art brought back to the original colours, the large basilica seems almost fake with the light walls cement coloured and the vibrant blue and pink of the ceiling and upper walls. Something is still...More

We visited St. Michael's and were very impressed by the size and location of the cathedral. It was located near the center of the city. It really is a beautiful peaceful place to visit.

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip

Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
