Mary, Queen of the World Cathedral

Mary Queen of the World Cathedral is the cathedral of Montreal, which means it is the most important Catholic church in the city. It was finished in 1894, and it is a 1/3-size copy of Saint Peter’s Cathedral in Rome, which is the church where the Pope works. The statues on the front are statues of saints representing the 13 parishes of Montreal. The inside is very beautiful, and it is a very close copy of the original church in Italy. Admission is free. The church is downtown, near the Queen Elizabeth Hotel, the Sun Life Building, and Dorchester Square park.
