Cette imposante basilique, construite de 1824 ả 1829 et termin?e au d?but des ann?es 1840, fut le premier exemple significatif de style n?ogothique au Canada. ?glise paroissial ?rig?e selon les plans de l'architecte am?ricano-irlandais James O'Donnell, elle exprime avec ?clat l'?tape romantique des d?buts de ce style, par l'application d'?l?ments m?di?vaux, comme les arcs en ogive, les creneaux et les pinacles, ả une forme sym?trique d'influence classique. Le chois du n?ogothique pour un ?difice aussi prestigieux annon?ait l'importance qu'allait prendre ce style dans l'architecture canadienne.

This imposing basilica, constructed from 1824 to 1829 and completed in the early 1840s, was the first significant example of Gothic Revival style in Canada. Built as a parish church to designs by Irish American architect James O'Donnell, it is an outstanding example of the style's early Romantic phase, characterized by the application of medieval features such as pointed arches, battlements, and pinnacles to a classically influenced, symmetrical form. The use of the Gothic Revival for such an important building heralded the prominence the style would have in Canadian architecture.
