Words and Photos can not even come close to seeing this wonder in person. I noticed only one person in the prayer room. Try it for a sobering and humbling meditative experience.

This is a must visit while you are in the Upper Town in old Quebec City. So much gold and gold paint! The basilica also has the only "Holy Door" in North America. The door is currently "closed" however you can have a look at...More

The Basilique was very beautiful and centered in the old city for easy access. Lots of different areas to see. Would recommend

Loved the Cathedral, reminded us of the cathedrals of Paris. Beautiful stained glass, high arch ceilings and right in the center of all the old city attractions and shopping. Sat in the park across the street at night to watch the street performers.

This church is absolutely stunning. Noisy, disrespectful people almost ruined my visit. Please remember that this is a church. If you come in, be respectful (remove your ball caps), and if you must talk, talk quietly. The ornate decoration and the details are just gorgeous....More

A very pretty basilica, certainly worth seeing while in Quebec. But, not nearly as magnificent as basilicas you may have seen in Europe.

We stopped here for Sunday mass. It is a gorgeous church - very ornate. As expected, the mass was in French but it was a great experience.

This is a gorgeous church. The architecture is spectacular and intricate in design. We loved going through it. What faith and devotion the early people who lived there had. The art work is amazing and the church has so much historical significance. I can’t imagine...More

If you are a devout Catholic, this church is not to be missed! The church houses one of the Holy Doors. I was able to attend an evening prayer which was a beautiful experience as I was seated by the altar section.

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
