This church is a must see for anyone visiting Quebec City. It is a monument of faith with incredible history and artistic design. Great place to sit and be still in the midst of your old city explorations

I found Basilique Cathedrale - Notre-Dame-de-Québec to go with my family on Christmas morning for mass. It's a very beautiful Basilica/Cathedral, with old-fashioned pews, amazing windows and also is a huge part of Quebec History. The service was great, and afterwards we were able to...More

The gold piece above the altar is the star attraction here. We were unable to see the Holy Door (from inside) because of cleaning. Do take the time to watch the video in the side room about Francois Laval.

We attended Mass on Dec.31st and were so blessed to have 12 priests to celebrate the Mass. The basilica was beautifully decorated for the Christmas season. Notre Dame is definitely a representation of the beautiful cathedrals one could visit in Europe.

Beautiful church in the French style (of course) Unfortunately we were able to enjoy its beauty for a few minutes because the Tuesday morning mass was just beginning. I would definitely recommend a visit.

Was determined to get inside and see this beautiful cathedral. Most importantly to see the Holy Door. Quite a few people visiting on the morning we did, all very respectful. Had the room to ourselves to see the Holy Door. Beautiful.

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

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.
