This is a beautiful church which stands tall just outside the boundaries of the Ottawa Byward Market. Right across from the Art Gallery it makes for a great photo opportunity. Definitely recommend visiting if you are out and about touring in downtown Ottawa.

This Basilica is nothing very special. However, as it is located right in front of the National Gallery it is worth having a short visit.

Across the road from the National Gallery of Canada so do at the same time. If visiting churches is something you enjoy, then this Bascilica is worth the visit.

Beautiful cathedral located near the National Art Gallery of Canada. Recommend taking the guided tour as the self-guided pamphlet is lacking and confusing.

I only regret I could see this only from the outside, as I had little time during a quick trip to Ottawa. But it is a special ecclesiastical building for sure, and one I'd be happy to visit

It was part of our walkabout and without going in you couldn't miss it's beautiful. You travel around this city and on every block there seems to be something to take note of. You just have to enjoy everything.
