As you approach Cheticamp from the south, you'll see Saint Peter's Church with its silver spire towering over the town, much as you would in approaching a village in Europe. Saint Peter's is one of only a few stone churches on Cape Breton island. Those familiar with churches along the St. Lawrence will note Saint Peters' similarity to churches in that area of Quebec, both inside and outside. Its French-Canadian Neo-classical character is no accident, as Saint Peter's was designed by an architect from Quebec City and built by Quebec tradesmen in 1893. While the sandstone exterior is somewhat pedestrian, the interior is beautiful; it includes Corinthian columns, an upper gallery, and an ornate 1912 altar. A stained-glass rose window is above the front entrance. Bottom line, stop in and have a look at this beautiful church!

Reminiscent of European cathedrals, beautiful inside and out! We found the doors open and we were able to freely wander about. It’s a distinguishable landmark from far away....

Very big Church located in Cheticamp which is very beautiful for picture opportunity. We had the opportunity to drive and stop for a quick visit. I recommend it if you are in visiting churches.

An architectural marvel on way to Cabot Trail. See the beauty from the outside and if the door is open, you can see the amazing construction and decoration.

This building is simply breathtaking. An unexpected gem in this small, seaside town, this church is a must-see landmark. We stayed in Cheticamp with family who insisted we stop at the church during our stay, not only to see their parish, but hear the acoustics (we're musicians). We were blown away by the beauty of the church and sang some acappella harmonies while inside. WOW! The sound was incredible! There was a small bus tour that heard us and they thought they were getting a free show. Went upstairs to see the organ and the view. Again, WOW! Bought a few postcards, made a donation and lit a candle.What a beautiful building. Stop in and look around, you won't regret it!
