Sainte Cécile Church

New Brunswick

Definitely stop at the unbelievable Sainte Cécile Church. Built in 1913 and unremarkable from the outside, the inside was repainted in the 1960s by one psychedelic reverend who opted for a kaleidoscope of color when the original linseed oil turned the interior dark. You must see this to believe it.
