BASIL­ICA CATHE­DRAL OF ST. JOHN THE BAP­TIST

Kayak (Canada) - - BACKYARD HISTORY -

This huge stone church sits on one of the high­est points in St. John’s, NL. Pic­tures taken af­ter the ter­ri­ble fire swept through the city in 1892 show the basil­ica as one of the few build­ings still stand­ing. It is more than 160 years old and is a na­tional his­toric site of­fer­ing tours, as well as a church.
