It's surprising that the church is still here as there was a movement to demolish it in the past. It has undergone several changes in its lifetime. It is dedicated to The Virgin Mary who protected Quebec twice again not the British and those scenes...More

So grateful and humbled to attend Mass at this revered Church. When we attended, a boys choir performed ... sounded angelic.

'Twas a very spiritual experience. We felt like were in 18th Century Europe. The priest was kind enough to give his homily in English, knowing that many people are coming from different parts of the country.

This church is the oldest church in North America. Must see. Located in Old Quebec City, it is a nice place to see and light a candle.

If you time it right, catch the mass and then stick around for the organ to perform the final number. The cathedral is one of the most beautiful I've seen.

Very nice church to stop in and review the architecture and art. May be very moving if you are spiritual, it was to me.

The Basilique is breathtaking. A lot of history. Best to take the free tour. Available in either French or English. It is grand. You do not have to be a catholic to appreciate this beautiful church. A lot of beautiful statues. The grounds are immaculate.

Visit here for a short reflection away from the busy streets outside, maybe offer a prayer to those less fortunate and gaze in wonderment at the gold altar and magnificent artwork on the ceiling.

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.
