  • No need to have a religious mindset to be totally amazed by this sumptuous building. For visiting around the world during my travels and frankly I was left speechless once before but especially in the Interior. It's exceptionally beautiful! Feel free to stop. In the same area, you will see the oldest chapel of the Canada, the oldest wooden church with its 28 Holy stairs and a paved cross of sumptuous statues showing the last moments of the christ.

  • Beautiful basilica! Must-see for its architecture, beauty and more even if you're Catholic, so much devotion is experienced. It has masses in English and French, and a visit guided tours every day.

  • Absolutely beautiful inside and out. The detail in the doors and the stained glass is amazing to see and photos just don't do them justice. Well worth the trip to see first hand.
  • The shrine is a monumental piece of architecture and design. The inside is breathtaking. Very serene. The alter is very beautiful with ornaments. It was in the month of May and we met a few people. It is a healing shrine so most of us were praying for healing. Was told that the shrine gets very busy in June and July when 100s of thousands of pilgrims come from all over the world. Be prepared to spend about an hour or more when you visit. They have restrooms and restaurants are close by.
  • The shrine of Sainte Anne is a beautiful church both from the inside and out; it has a very peaceful atmosphere inside while the exterior is massive with Gothic-like architecture. Well worth stopping here as a side-trip from Quebec.
  • Beautiful basilica in a most unexpected place. Interior and exterior are stunning and impressive. Only needs 1-2 hours. Combine it with Canyon Ste Anne for a great day trip from Quebec City!
  • Well worth the drive. Massive church and beautiful. Mass offered regularly. Despite the size, it was very warm and inviting. I didn't feel lost in its space. The art work is beautiful and tells the story of Mary's parents. Parking was easy, and there are multiple sites to visit.
