St. Peter’s Writ Small

20140620-102610-37570865.jpgThe Marie-Reine-du-Monde Cathedral is a precise replica of St. Peter’s in Rome — just at 1/3 scale. Even so, it’s a pretty impressive structure in the early morning light.



Notre-Dame Basilica

One of the more lovely spots is the square facing Notre-Dame Basilica, which also features some graceful statuary. It seems to be a popular destination for tour groups, and when we were there yesterday a lone trumpet player entertained passersby with selections from Handel’s Messiah.
