While the interior of this church is worth looking at, it is not as stunning as the altar in the Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal. But its golden altar does catch your attention and it also has some lovely stained glass windows.

Certainly the Basilica is worth going in just to admire the beautiful decor, stained glass, carvings, and altar. Beyond that, it was a wonderful respite from the hubbub of the city just outside its walls. As grand as it is, it still conveys a reverential...More

After seeing magnificent cathedrals in Europe, I have to say that this cathedral cannot be compared to those ancient masterpieces. Nevertheless, it is a grand cathedral. One of our friends is Catholic and she really appreciated the beauty of Notre Dame. Even if you are...More

We were wandering about just looking at things when we ran into the Basilique. We entered and found an amazing experience, very European. We are American and I grew up Catholic. There were oil paintings everywhere as well as exquisite stained glass windows. The pews...More

This grand basilica is gloriously beautiful. The architecture, the paintings, the windows, the ceiling decor, etc. A photographer's delight.

Lovely cathedrale in the center of the Old Town. We walked in on a mass but were invited to sit down which we did. They still have actual candles for lighting instead of electric ones.

Absolutely stunning. We walked in and showed ourselves around, keeping quiet and making sure not to use flash on the camera. They are usually closed on Monday.

Lovely decorations and golden centre piece. There is also a short video guide room to how the church developed in English and French, a great touch to its history.

Visiting this cathedral is awe inspiring. I found it informative to engage in the audio visual that they have off to one side which summarized the life of the first bishop of Quebec.

I believe the Cathedrale mentioned above is in the Old City within Quebec City. This is within walking distance from most areas of downtown near the old city. It is also a gorgeous church.
