Stop in and if you are into magnificent churches, you will not be disappointed. At some point, you'll pass it on a stroll through Vieux Quebec.

We visited the cathedral during a mass as part of a walking tour. I wish we had had more time. The beautiful gold will amaze. Very European in feel.

The first Neo-gothic church in Canada. It's very beautiful outside and wonderful inside. You have to donate CAD6 to get inside. Don't miss it.

This lovely cathedral is in the heart of old Quebec and just a 5 minute walk from the Chateau Frontenac. It's beautiful and magnificent and worth a walk through. Quiet place for prayer time, too.
