Notre-Dame Cathedral/Basilica – Ottawa, Ontario
A few weekends ago we were in our national capital, Ottawa for the Canadian men’s curling championship. Yes I know folks, with me the ‘excitement’ never stops 😉
While there we took the time to visit a few of the major museums including the Canadian War Museum and the National Gallery which is shown below:
Right across the street from the Gallery is this wonderful piece of early 1840’s Gothic Revival architecture, the Notre-Dame Basilica Cathedral
I put the wide angle lens on the camera and we went over to have a closer look:
Yes, the carved and painted interior mentioned on the plaque is quite impressive to behold, but this place also has some wonderful doors:
As a National Historic Site the building, its doors, facade and steeples are very well maintained:
I’m learning to take the time to walk around the entire exterior of a building whenever possible because often enough, the side and rear doors hold nice surprises as well:
I took a number of nice shots of the interior which I’ll be using in future non-doors posts but here is one of several old wooden interior doors that lead into the main Cathedral:
Here’s a quick teaser to give you an idea of how full this place is of of rich, ornate, and colourful elements – the interior is truly impressive:
As always, I thank you for reading 🙂
