Very stately and lovely cathedral, in the midst of the tourist area. We enjoyed the church very much and recommend visiting it. Our visit was September 2017 actually, but I did not submit the draft then Sorry!

If you like history and architecture you should pop in. It is easily accessible and right downtown. Worth a look.

We were travelling about the province and coming towards Charlotte you could see the church spires for miles. The architecture is incredible and the stained glass was breathtaking. I only wish we were there on a sunnier day.

Hi. It’s open everyday from 8-5 but you want to check their website to be sure. If you are just visiting (taking pics) and not attending the service (Mass) then 1pm would be a good time to go.
