The Notre Dame Cathedral is the largest and oldest standing Catholic church in Ottawa, capital of Canada. The building’s structure was constructed between 1841 and 1865, and the interior ornamentation, from 1876 to 1885. The exterior of the Notre Dame Cathedral is characterized by its two tall, shimmering, tin-tops, with a golden statue of Holy Mary standing in between.
The interior of the church has many stunning features, including elaborate wooden carvings, colorful stained-glass windows, Gothic arches and terraces supported by narrow columns, not to mention the indigo ceiling sprinkled with gleaming stars. As some may say, “The Devil is in the Details”.
