Very, very beautiful building. Even though the outside was under construction, the interior was as beautiful as ever and did not disappoint. The candles were placed in colourful jars, and the amount of detail put into creating such a stunning space cannot be expressed enough....More

When we were visiting, there was scaffolding all over the front. Fortunately, the interior was beautiful and peaceful. We always take time to simply sit and enjoy the serenity and really focus on the finer details.

We arrived in time to hear a talk for a group tour. The gold leaf had been replaced a couple years ago, evident from the brilliance of the gold. The altar area was stunning. The stained glass clear and colour were crisp. The surprise was...More

Beautiful and so well kept for its age. Redone after a fire but still worth seeing! Walking distance.

Like so many things in Quebec, this cathedral is like it was brought from Europe. Being from Europe myself, I have seen more impressive churches, but this one is definitely beautiful also in my eyes.

We’ve been to Paris and this cathedral is literally a glimpse of Paris! Classic breathtaking design and finishing. The gold is majestic and just inspires awe and wonder. We stopped in briefly for Sunday mass.

Beautiful stained glass windows. Also the resting place of a lesser known Saint, which is pretty cool. Smack dab in the middle of the city, is a place of solace and beauty. Very easy to pray here.

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
