Notre Dame Cathedral Basilica (Ottawa)

Interesting
The Roman Catholic cathedral of Ottawa, Notre Dame Basilica was consecrated in 1846, but not actually finished until the 1880s. Visible from afar, its delicate twin steeples flank a gold-leafed statue of the Madonna and Child. The very fine woodwork of the interior was carved in mahogany by Philippe Parizeau, while the statues, which depict the prophets, patriarchs and apostles, were crafted in wood by Louis-Philippe Hébert.
