St Michael's Cathedral Basilica stands proudly as one of Toronto's finest examples of Gothic Revival architecture. Buttressed walls and pointed arches remind of European Gothic designs, while the cream-colored bricks and teal accents give the exterior a pleasing neutral palette. Note the ribbed vaults and exposed beams that decorate the interior of the church, as well as the hand-blown stained glass windows, the most prominent a Baroque-style interpretation of the Crucifixion by French artist Etienne Thevenot.

  • Staying nearby St. Micheal's Cathedral Basilica is an honour and my living room is facing directly is blessing. This is a beautiful gothic-style cathedral. Have a look at inside, it's so gorgeous and stunning beautiful from outside and inside. Always welcoming but check with their schedule masses. Never get enough to admiring around....the architecture structures here speechless stunning beautiful, can't believe just next to my home.
  • Constructed in the 19th century, this church is an architectural marvel! Daily mass service is available(3 masses daily, and 5 masses on Sunday. If you're new in the city or just visiting, you should make it a point to attend mass. The choir is heavenly!! Paired with the organ it creates a perfect environment for prayer and worship! The stained glass windows depict various saints and characters from the Bible. One must definitely visit when in town!
