During our “10-Day Canada and New England” cruise aboard Caribbean Princess ship, we visited St. Mary’s Basilica in Halifax, a National Historic Site of Canada. From outside the basilica, its Gothic façade and tall spire looked somewhat unusual, because they were all built with white granite. When we entered the basilica, we were pleasantly surprised by so elegant nave, which gave us such a warm feel, unlike typical Gothic cathedrals’s oppressive feel. Simplistic and, yet, very elegant nave had pristine decors with white columns and beautiful stained glass windows. In spite of high Gothic style vaulted ceiling and tall columns, we felt as if we were inside a warm Renaissance style nave. The pipe organ was also placed in an elegant way. We were so fortunate to witness a wedding ceremony for a lovely couple taking place during our visit. We quietly sat down in the back of the nave, and watched the ceremony in a beautiful setting for a while before quietly leaving the nave. We had such a memorable and pleasant time visiting this basilica. We highly recommend visiting this basilica during your visit to Halifax.
