  • ​Small compared to other basilicas in Europe but towers over the relatively modest Charlottetown skyline. Nice interior and exterior architecture.
  • Breath taking! A must see if in the area and a short walk from the waterfront in Charlottetown.
  • Must see.very very eye catching.
  • It's a very beautiful basilica. You can feel the solemnity of the place.
  • Beautiful inside and outside! Very peaceful inside.
