The Catheral fits St. John so well. It commands a wonderful IWW of the city, and you can feel the sense of history. When I think of all the prayers offered in this church for missing mariners, sick family members & other concerns is overwhelming.

The basilica dominates the St. John's skyline and is central to so much of St. John's history. You can just walk by it if you don't have time to tour.

The basilica is worth a look if you are out for a walk in the downtown of the city. It's rather impressive to stand out front and look up and take in the architecture. The inside is worth a look as well if you can get inside. We happened to be there for Saturday evening mass, and stayed for mass.
They also light up the basilica at night, and we went by to see it one evening.

We visited the Basilica on our last day in St. John's and were very glad not to have missed it. The stained glass is outstanding, some French, some Irish, and some English -- all absolutely beautiful. We were appreciative of the expertise and interest of a docent who gave us information about the stained glass and the history of the Basilica. This is definitely a "must see" in St. John's.
