Ottawa Notre Dame Basilica (Basilique-Cathédrale Notre-Dame)

Ottawa’s Roman Catholic Notre Dame Basilica is the largest and oldest church in the city, dating back to 1839.

The building has a somewhat austere exterior, but the interior is rich in color and detail. Built in Gothic style, the building is topped with a pair of slender spires and features large stained-glass windows.

Inside, the long central nave is lined with pointed Gothic arches topped with terraced galleries. The nave runs to the semi-circular sanctuary with its blue painted ceiling, ribbed vaults and carved altars. Pop in to admire the sculptures and painted detail, or take a guided tour. Church services are held in both French and English.

Practical Info

Ottawa’s Notre Dame Basilica is off Sussex Drive near Alexandra Bridge, around a 15-minute walk north of downtown Ottawa.
