The Anglican Church in Canada

Built between 1800 and 1804, this cathedral was the first Anglican cathedral built under the authority of the British Crown outside of Great Britain (except for the United States, but that's an entirely different story). What is particularly unusual is that the architects were two particularly devout British Army officers, William Robe and William Hall, who designed a slightly disappointing exterior but a magnificent interior nave. About thirty years later, the eight bells for the cathedral tower were cast by the Whitechapel Bell Foundry, which cast both "Big Ben" (the bell that chimes in the famous tower in the Houses of Parliament in London) and the "Liberty Bell" of American fame in Philadelphia. Visitors can request tours of the cathedral from the months of May through November. As an active parish, worshippers are welcome to attend scheduled mass.
