We walked by it and missed it as it was so cold when we visited. We made a special trip to go and visit and I am so happy to have done so.

Beautiful and well maintained in the heart of Old Quebec. It's always interesting to see a gorgeous church.

We always love walking through churches, and this was a beautiful one! We enjoyed all the details and in the future would like to do a tour.

Visited this historic and elaborate basilica during Saturday night mass. Services were in french and hymn lyrics were projected for all to sing with accompaniment from the impressive organ

Very opulent cathedral thanks to the generosity of the French missionaries. Although grand, it hardly means anything to someone who is not a catholic. Do remember to remain silent as this remains an active place of worship.

A beautiful church with the old traditions. French service with a bit of Latin and incense. A must see.

Stunning. Be sure to stop here and take a calming break from the tourist must-see list. It is an impressive structure. Light a candle, say a prayer, In excellent condition.

Good luck. I am guessing it will be very busy and very crowded. We were there in the “off” season and it was packed with people. Just too beautiful. Lower your photographic expectations and just try to soak it in. Do the... More
