We attended church here on Sunday--It is a Beautiful Architecture. A must to see if you are in the Charlottetown area. You certainly don't have to be a religious person to enjoy this beautiful architecture

Lovely sacred space with striking Stations of the Cross and architectural elements, particularly the ceiling. We also enjoyed mass here.

We only visited the Basilica briefly, but the interior is worth the visit. It's a solemn and serene place which is a lovely place for reflection and prayer. The architecture is stunning.

Walking in from the cold wind to find a beautiful and grand church. My first glance took my breath away and it continued​ as I walked around. I posted a few of my favorite pictures.
