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 .

I found this Anglican Cathedral far more interesting and impressive than its Catholic equivalent. Good stained glass windows. Splendid silver treasure and servers from the 17th century. Informative guide, and a good English guidebook. Interesting monuments to read?

This is a very different church from the Notre-Dame de Quebec Basilica and worth a visit. It is said to be modeled after St. Martin-in-the-Fields and Marylebone Chapel in London - has a Palladian style exterior and a lovely, more simple interior than the basilica....More

The stained glass windows are stunning. It's an interesting historical site because it is the first Anglican Church to be built outside of England.

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.
