St. Dunstan's Basilica

ST. DUNSTAN'S BASILICA

With its soaring spires, picturesque pinnacles and intricate tracery, St. Dunstan's Basilica is an excellent example of the High Victorian Gothic style in Canadian architecture. Erected between 1897 and 1907, it was severely damaged by fire in 1913. Determined citizens rallied to conserve the surviving walls and rebuilt the cathedral to the original exterior plan by F.-X. Berlinguet. The interior was redesigned by J.M. Hunter. Consecrated and elevated to the status of a basilica in 1929, St. Dunstan's is the spiritual centre of Catholicism in Prince Edward Island.
