The Basilica is located in the heart of Ottawa across from the National Art Gallery and just a few blocks from Parliament hill as well as the ByWard Market. The interior of the Basilica is absolutely stunning. A visit is a must while in Ottawa

I only had an hour or so to stroll around but the Basilica is quite beautiful and well worth seeing. It is also close to Parliament Hill, so you are a short stroll from wonderful views of the river, the House of Commons and the Parliament Library.

This was one of the nicest churches we've visited, this should be on your list of must-sees especially with its close proximity to the Parliament buildings.

This is a beautiful church! I have been there many times for christenings and first communions! If you love stain glass and old charm this is a church for you to see!

Impressive works of art and architecture. It was a beautiful day. The reflection of the sun from the stained glass was magnificent. We didn't know that a guided tour of the cathedral is available and so missed it. Although smaller than the Basilica in Montreal, it is equally as magnificent. Worth a visit.
