  • Really nice basilica to visit in Quebec City. Gréât vitrages all around. Soft music playing and you can also put a candles ($2 or $5). Nice place to visit. Lots of history.

  • This church is grand and humbling. It is also free unlike the Notre Dame Cathedral in Montreal which charges for entry and one must be reserved online.

  • This 300+ year old cathedral still plays a large role in the lives of Québec's Catholic community. Services are held regularly, and I got a glimpse of the interior whilst on a guided tour. It is amazingly beautiful, and the sanctity of the place is palpable. Well worth the visit.
  • It's a very beautiful church and an historical place. For believers I highly recommend to go for a mass there. Hours of mass are available online
