I'm not really a religious person but I can't avoid admiring the structure of some churches. I went in a fairly cold weather so it was mostly deserted, so I had a good amount of time to enjoy it myself

Went to early mass before a day of site seeing. Beautiful stained glass windows and worth a visit. Gothic style built in 1847.

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University

with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
