Basilica Cathedral of St. John the Baptist

St. John's

Built of Newfoundland and Irish bluestone and granite, the church is in the shape of a Latin Cross. A town clock and nine bells, including the two-tonne St. John's Bell, are located in the twin towers. The Basilica houses John Hogan's revered "Dead Christ", while the ornate Italianate ceiling is polychromed and highlighted in gold leaf. There are stained glass windows by Irish, French and English artists and a museum that holds interesting exhibits of the cathedral's history.
