I LOVE visiting beautiful old churches wherever I go and St. Dunstans is always worth a visit. A truly exquisite building.

St Dunstan's in in downtown Charlottetown. It is near Victoria Row and many downtown restaurants, shops, and entertainment venues. Parking is easy. The Basilica is very pretty and definitely worth a few minutes to step inside and appreciate its beauty.

Closed until noon. It's all about the power the church possessed over these migrants. Very grand. The stain glass windows are a bit eerie

It's close to the waterfront and an easy walk. It's a beautiful church and worth a visit if you are doing a walking tour...which you should when in town.

We arrived in Charlottetown on a Sunday afternoon after driving all morning from Halifax and were happy to find out that there was a 5:00 pm mass that we were able to attend. The basilica is sublimely beautiful inside and out. It is well worth visiting and learning about its history from brochures found inside the entry.

Stopped while on a stroll through Charlottetown. Found it peaceful and gave us time to reflect. The doors to the church are open to every denomination.

This is an oassis in Charlottetown a short walk from the waterfront. To reflect and "just be" among the beauty and serenity is exactly what this traveller needed. The windows and the ambience of the building provided a needed respite in order to spend some time to rest and reflect on our faith. A beautiful edifice.

The tallest building in Charlottetown this is a stand-out Church with a gorgeous interior. Mostly marble with an interesting color palette and with bright, beautiful stained glass windows, it is a very pleasant place to visit after a long walk about the downtown area.

We were able to visit St. Dunstan's Basilica in Charlottetown on a rainy Sunday. It is located downtown within walking distance of the Confederation Centre of the Arts and Victoria Row. The steeples, stained glass, statues, the altar, organ pipes and the ceiling of this building is just beautiful.
