You don't need to be a religious person to enjoy the history and the architecture of the Church of Our Lady. A masterpiece that took years to complete. Sod was turned in 1877, dedication in 1888, completion in 1926!
The cornerstone (1846)of the original stone church which replaced the first wooden church which stood on this hill, is still standing in front of the Church of Our Lady. Be sure to visit and read the inscription. A glimpse into the past.
Also, the new Guelph Civic Museum, next door to the Church of our Lady, is a must visit.
A lot of history in this little old town.

An impressive building that you can see from many parts in the down, perched on the top of a hill right in downtown.
A walk around and visit are mandatory when you visit Guelph !

I have always wanted to visit this beautiful church that sits high on a hill and overlooks the lovely city of Guelph. We were lucky to have the opportunity. It is absolutely beautiful, and so much like the cathedrals of Europe on a slightly smaller scale. The church is being carefully restored. The stain glass windows are oh so gorgeous, I was in awe. The front doors open up to the city and what a wonderful view from up there. For more info on this church go to the website. Don't miss this if visiting Guelph,you won't be disappointed.

The Church is beautiful and the organ music is wonderful. The church is on a hill so you can get a nice view of Guelph.
