Practical Information

Named after an Anglo Saxon saint from Glastonbury, England, St. Dunstan's Basilica is a beautifully constructed stone basilica. An elaborate example of French-Gothic architecture, it claims to be the only Roman Catholic cathedral in the region. The site's original structure was completed in 1907 though the landmark that stands today was constructed in 1916 after a fire destroyed the first site. Later that same century, the nicely rebuilt St. Dunstan's Basilica was designated a National Historic Site, skyrocketing it to the top of the list of great attractions in Charlottetown.
