The staff there were incredibly friendly and were very willing and capable of talking about the building’s history. Would recommend even just to have a quick look around, quite astoundingly beautiful.

I love seeing different churches while travelling through Europe. So I was happy to have the opportunity to see a beautiful, old basilica, right within my own country! Worth the visit to look at the gothic inspired ceiling and altar.

We actually visited Charlottetown as part of a cruise. Once you get off the ship, it is a short walk to the church which is on the way to the downtown area. It is a great landmark with beautiful workmanship. Easy stop!
