Step into St. Dunstan's Basilica and admire the marble floors, stained glass windows, and atmosphere of calm and contemplation. An original cathedral on the site burned down in 1907; the replacement you see today dates from 1913. Added to the list of National Historic Sites of Canada in 1990, it displays a Gothic Revival architectural style and represents one of the most prominent buildings in the city. As a local landmark, the basilica attracts both worshippers and those interested in the history and architecture of the town.

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