The Cathedral Church Of St. James - Review
When opened in 1853 this Gothic Revival church of white brick and Ohio sandstone was one of the largest buildings in the region. For 25 years the spire of the church was the tallest man-made structure in Canada. It was built on the site of an older stone church that was destroyed in the Great Fire of Toronto in 1849. The architecture incorporates all the elements such as the stained-glass windows, the choir, the transepts, the side aisles, and the flying buttresses into making the best use of natural light. Check out the Mint0n-tile floor work, the carved organ, the black walnut panelling of the chancel and Corinthian capitals.
Right outside the church is the St. James Park, a Victorian formal garden with a water fountain and a large gazebo. It’s almost an attraction in and of itself.

The Cathedral Church Of St. James, Toronto Reviews
A piece of history located in the heart of downtown. The architecture is stunning. Highly recommend if near by. 5 stars
An historic gem in old Toronto. When inside, be sure to pick up the brochure that provides you with "A self guided tour of the Cathedral". Fascinating facts from the brochure: The eagle lecturn at the front symbolises intellect, illumination, and inspiration. It was a common practice to use an eagle lecturn for the reading of the Bible and prayers of intercession in the medieval church.
