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 .

This cathedral was much more simple than others we've seen. Clean lines, bright and beautiful, with some nice stained glass.We used the "Map of Old Quebec" free audio tour to hear the history of the place, and it was great.

Not just another blooming church. Traveling, somehow, we always wander into churches as we go from Tahiti to Rome, some are good and some are just a place to rest our feet. This church is a great place to rest and get away from the...More

Although I've been visiting Quebec City for over 30 years, I never ventured into this place until this September. That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed my visit. Usually in a town or city there is only one cathedral, but here in Quebec there are two-...More

The first Anglican cathedral build outside of Britain. Several pieces of royal silver are on display and it has the oldest English change-ringing bells in Canada. Very beautiful and historical cathedral that you must make time to see!
