The Cathedral of the Holy Trinity is the first Anglican cathedral to be built outside the British Isles. Built between 1800 and 1804, the cathedral introduced to Canada the British Palladian style of architecture. While it was under construction, King George III commissioned the Royal Goldsmiths, Rundell and Bridge, to create an exceptional 10-piece silver Communion Service for the new Cathedral. The altar candlesticks, chalices and other elements are richly adorned, bearing the Arms of the King and of the Diocese of Quebec. This Communion Service is one of the finest examples of Georgian silver ever made. Truly a royal gift! Showcased in a permenent exhibit inside the Cathedral since 2014, it was awarded with the "Prize for Excellence" by the Québec Religious Heritage Council in November 2015. The Cathedral's bells date from 1830 and are the oldest change-ringing bells in Canada. They were made by the Whitechapel Bell Foundry in London, England, the same foundry that cast Big Ben, the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, and the great bell "Jean-Baptiste" of Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal. Nestled in the heart of Old Quebec, is the mother church of the Diocese of Quebec and has two parishes of Quebec Parish and the Parish of All Saints .

Very pretty

We just went in, while walking around, and it's definitely worth it to stop in. Just a very pretty church with a nice courtyard in front.

This church is a quick stop on a tour of the city, reflecting the English history of Quebec City. The church building is modeled after St. Martin's in the Fields, London.

This is a charming building now a cathedral though it does not proclaim that in size or style. It sits in a pleasant wee garden. Worth walking by.

This small church will leave an impression. The stain glass windows are spectacular. It's worth your time to stop by.

It's not as ornate as a lot of cathedrals, but it has some nice stained glass work. You won't find as many tourists here, but it's worth a look.

Didn't take the tour just visited the sites myself. Lots to do and see. You can hire a tourist guide but I don't need to listen to someone else talk . I just want to walk and visit myself .

The group I was with had arranged to take part in the normal Sunday Service. The Cathedral was fascinating and we could not have been made more welcome by the regular church goers.

As an Episcopal priest in the U. S., it was very interesting to see where the Church of England established the first Anglican cathedral on the continent. Silver communion set gifted by the English royalty is on display. Church architecture, especially the interior should be quite familiar to Anglicans.

This is a very small and simple cathedral. Inside it is cosy and one can find fine art. It a little outside the view of the center but worth to search for.

This is a rather understated cathedral, but it is Anglican after all. It is steeped in history, so make time to explore thoughtfully. We attended on Sunday morning and were privileged to have Bishop Bruce Myers presiding and preaching. There are three sources of musical accompaniment - the massive organ, a grand piano and a smaller, very old (older than... More
