This is a beautiful church, with a very unassuming exterior that you might overlook. Don't! The interior is stunning, and the history worth exploring. In fact, I would suggest that you not miss an opportunity to explore any of the churches in this historic city!

Basilique Cathedrale is a beautiful church, although with all the gold, it was a little gaudy for my taste. The most impressive part of our visit was learning about the history of the local parish and dioceses and their importance in the history of the...More

We were overwhelmed with the beauty and history in the Basilique Cathedrale - Norte Dame. This is a must see while visiting Old Quebec City.

Just another beautiful church showing how much people do for god. Walk, say a quick prayer and take a look around. It is the best architecture you will find in the city and absolutely worth the quick stop.

Can't believe we got to see one of the 4 world's Holly Doors. Was amazing. The Church is beyond beautiful. I am not even catholic, but really worth touring

This is a stunning cathedral that's open to the public and there's no fee for admission. If you visit Quebec City, you absolutely should make time for this. I really felt like I was in Europe. We enjoyed walking around and spent 30-45 minutes there.

In awe of the gold leaf and other trappings of RC Church’s vast wealth. Still very much a quiet refuge from everyday hustle and bustle.

This church is stunningly beautiful and has an interesing feature, there's a map of what Canada looked like as it was being discovered and developed by the French.

In a world in which churches are being sold, the remaining religious sites are a tribute to a different time. Churches controlled society and the people built monuments to their God. Today we are looking at a past history of man. But we visit these...More

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

I believe the Cathedrale mentioned above is in the Old City within Quebec City. This is within walking distance from most areas of downtown near the old city. It is also a gorgeous church.
