Got to explore this beautiful church! Stunning and inviting! It was open to the public, and had people there who were available to answer any questions that we had!

There are so many beautiful churches in Quebec provence and this obe is another must see. Not as large a Notre-Dame in Montreal but equally stunning. Light a candle for a loved one while there.

This is a beautiful church worth viewing. It is centrally located near the visitor center. I believe the monastery adjoining the church is now a school.

This church is a good source for history of the French Catholic church in North America. Talk with the student in priestly attire. The free standing altar is a wonder.

I love old churches, especially if they are ornately decorated. This one fits the “bill”. To see for yourself - just look at the posted photos/images.

Awesome experience for any one of any religion. We attended Sunday mass just to see the interior and listen to the tenor sing.

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
