This is the oldest building in Vancouver - dates back to the end of the 19th century - and has just undergone a major refurbishment. It does not stack up architecturally with the English cathedrals, but is worth the visit. We attended the main Easter...More

Many of my fellow TripAdvisor reviewers have commented on the architecture, design, and stained glass windows. They are all correct - this building, built 1889 (!) is a marvel. But, this is also a place to stop and catch one's breath, to meditate if you...More

Very nice stained glass windows and a large organ are two of the attractions here. A nice place to sit and reflect on life. The restoration was painstakingly done and really is impressive.

This is a peaceful haven in the centre of Vancouver. Full of stunning stained glass, and the most amazing wooden roof, it also hosts a beautiful organ. A must visit if you're passing through Vancouver.
