Create an itinerary including Notre-Dame-des-Victoires Church
From its single white steeple to its grey stone exterior, Notre-Dame-des-Victoires Church evokes all the charm you'd expect from the old part of the city. Construction began in 1687 in the Colonial French style, underlined by the intricate white and gold details on the interior. The interior pays tribute to Quebec faith and history with representative sculptures and motives throughout, and the naval ship suspended from the ceiling is not to be missed. A British bombardment destroyed the original church, leading to its 1816 rebuild. The church has since been named a National Historic Site of Canada.

  • Beautiful church steeped in history, a calm and quiet place to sit and relax amidst the busy hustle of old Quebec, and an interesting piece of Québécoise cultural history.

  • Well it's only open on weekends this time of year, so we were able to see just the outside. The original church in a very old part of town. The architecture is classic and lovely.

  • Beautiful bright interior, one of the oldest churches on the north American continent From the outside, Notre-Dame-des-Victoires doesn't seem to impress much but if you take some minutes to enter, sit down in one of the benches and have a look into its interior, you'll be positively surprised. Although you might not be religious (or not even Christian), this small, fine church might attract you thanks to its bright interior, its long history (the altar already mentions 1690 and 1711) and the general white and golden decoration. At the weekend the church may be too crowded, so try best on a weekday. Nevertheless, as many people just walk through for some minutes, you will have the possibility to sit down and admire the church's decoration and feel the ancient spirit! From what I saw, it's unfortunately, not wheelchair accessible.
  • Lots of history here (the oldest church in Canada, for example). Definitely a must-go if you’re in Quebec City. This is also where “Catch me if you can” ends.
