Forming one end of the Grand Parade, this classically handsome white Georgian building was the first Anglican cathedral established outside of England, and as such is Canada's oldest Protestant place of worship. It was once the figurehead for all church doings in eastern Canada -- all the way to Ontario. That makes it pretty significant. (Part of the 1749 church was fabricated in Boston and erected in Halifax with the help of a royal endowment from King George II.) Later, history continued happening here: A piece of flying debris from the great explosion of 1917 is lodged in the wall over the doors to the nave. Just a quick visit is enough to get a sense of the place, especially the fine stained-glass windows; take one of the summertime guided tours if you want to see more. But you're also allowed to be amazed by the exterior.
