  • This is an awesome structure in the middle of an old city landsvape. Sitting across from it with harp music on the background one gets the feeling of stepping back in time  more »
  • Construction is extraordinary. The visit of the basilica was a nice surprise. What is more, we learned a little more on the history of the Maritimes and Prince Edward Island.

  • Such a beautiful place. One can truly believe God works find his home here
  • Small but very impressive city. Enjoyed two days of site seeing
  • ​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.
