A most beautiful church

I love to visit great churches when I travel and Montreal has one of the best, the Notre-Dame Basilica. The church is located in Old Montreal, and there has been a church at the site since the mid 17th century, initially a small one run by the Jesuits. The present building was constructed in the 1820s.

In my opinion the most impressive part of the ornate interior is the rich blue background which sets off the many yellow gold features.

The first cathedral on this site in the city of Coutances was built in the 5th Century and destroyed by fire during the Norman invasion in the 9th Century. This is the 3rd cathedral which was completed in 1274.It has survived several calamities through the years and is a beautiful structure to visit today.

St. James Cathedral, Toronto

St. James Cathedral, Toronto

The site where the present cathedral of St. James sits has had church buildings present, going back to 1807 shortly after the Town of York was established. The first wooden building was ransacked by the Americans during the War of 1812, and was eventually replaced by a stone structure in 1833. After a fire in 1849, the present cathedral was built and it is magnificent both inside and out. It also allows visitors unlike many churches which open only for services.
