  • Beautiful church, really preferred it over St. Anne de Beaupré. Attended a Sunday mass and caught a touring choir performance while walking by one night.
  • Amazing decorations filled with faith. A place for quiet times and meditation. You should visit when in Montreal!
  • Extérieurement je ne suis pas vraiment séduit par l'édifice, mais l'intérieur vaut plus que le détour ; lumineux, immense et richement décoré, dans un mélange étonnant de sobriété et d'excès. Vraiment magnifique, dans un genre qui tranche singulièrement avec la pierre froide et les clairs-obscurs des édifices européens.
  • 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.
  • If you are in Old Quebec City, dont miss the opportunity to visit this amazing basilica! Google map directions to walk up the hill to the church is confusing. The streets to walk up the hill are not friendly to stroller. It will be a bumpy ride for the kids in the stroller. The church is always crowded with visitors.
