(4.7/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
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.
