  • This early Halifax, Roman Catholic church is a great place to stop in and reflect on the architecture and life itself. Afterwards, the Spring Garden rd area is a great walk!

  • Stunning architecture inside, well worth the walk up the hill. Mind boggling how these places were built years ago without diggers and cranes etc.
