A fine wooden and stone building masterpiece
Visited by Pope John Paul II in 1984, the Notre-Dame Cathedral Basilica is a fine wood and stone building masterpiece. It was built by faith-filled architects and sculptors in the 1840s and now stands as the oldest church in Ottawa.

The interior of this cathedral basilica is just beyond majestic. A line of imposing arches and bundles of thin columns run on both sides from the entrance to the altar. Its sanctuary brings you into a great assembly of patriarchs, prophets and apostles sculptured around Christ, and its indigo ceiling is covered with a scattering of stars.

The cathedral basilica is open to the public, and best times to visit are Tuesday and Friday mornings and Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. Visitors are advised to adhere to social distancing guidelines while within the premises.
