Always have to stop into the local church

This church was quite nice. I stop in every major church when I'm in a new town. Not quite as opulent as some but worth the stop.

This is a beautiful church but we had been to St. Anne Basillica first and that is so grand this one was dwarfed in grander. Still a good place to make a stop. Lots of history.

The cathedral was on our must-see list for Old Quebec. We stumbled upon it but couldn't get access. The building is in need of repairs and it looks as though there was a fundraiser going on while we were there. We were disappointed with the very narrow schedule of the cathedral.

A lovely church located centrally. It is really beautiful and a must see part of the tour of QC. The annexe is particularly nice.

We just missed the holy doors being opened the week before. This is a very nice church and even though the holy doors were not open it was still nice to see them as they are the only ones in North America. If you’re in the area it’s worth a stop to have a look inside, there is no admission... More

Beautiful, I have visited other Notre Dame churches in the world and this one is probably not as nice as the others (architecturally speaking). Still a very nice place to visit and pray.

We went to the church for mass. The basilica is gorgeos, absolutely beautiful. It has several little chapels for praying.

This is a fantastic piece of architecture, without an argument. Quite frankly, however - with me being from the Baltimore/ Washington, D.C. area - it wasn't all too spectacular by my "standards". Nevertheless, the Cathedral is certainly worth a visit, if you are touring Old Town Québec.
