Such beautiful architecture and a must see for all people regardless of their beliefs. Just makes me wonder how they built these structures with just their hands and no large equipment like we have now.

A beautiful renovation includes gold leaf enhancements that are truly breathtaking. Comparable to European cathedrals a place you should not miss. A blessed experience for all who visit.

The church is a testament to the faith and belief of those 1600's settlers and their commitment to accomplishing their goals.

Typically French basilica, very ornate. The church is beautiful. It is worth a visit if you enjoy seeing church architecture. There is very little information in English so doing some research regarding construction and the history before entering is helpful if you do not read...More

This Church was built in the 1700's is absolutely awesome. The art work and icons are spiritually rewarding. If you like pipe organs then attend the Sunday mass.

This is a beautiful church--worth the visit! It's in the lower section and it feels like you're in France.

Ornate, large, overwhelming and awe-inspiring. The map near the resting place of Bishop Laval shows the important and historic influence of the early French fur traders in North America.

By European standards, this Basilica doesn't really impress. It is beautiful, but smaller than I expected. I was far more impressed at the Basilica of Sainte-Anne-De-Beuapre that is about 18k to the east of Quebec City. If you are making a trip to Montmorency Falls,...More

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.

We were in Quebec City for our son's wedding in mid September. Some guests stayed just around the block from the basilica. Couldn't tell you the price or any other information, but the lady who owns the place is: Anie... More
