All small details are amazing and the holy spirit feeling inside the walls, a must to pass by and spend a few minutes inside if you don't want to pray

Not far from the Chateau Frontenac you can find this stunning cathedral, the outside is impressive but the interior deserves your attention, the stained glass images are superb, well worth a visit.

We visited as part of guided tour. Church was stunning and a smaller version of Paris. Stained glass was magnifique.

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
