Breathtaking and elegant.

We visited the Cathedrale and it was beautiful. We had to try several times because of the hours of operation. But, it was so worth it.

Beautiful cathedral in the old city. A place of worship spoiled by masses of disrespectful Chinese being noisy and using the place for a photo shoot backdrop.

The amount of gold leaf placed in the structure behind the altar is amazing. Great example of trussed architecture.

This is a beautiful church that is lovely inside. Managed to just visit before a service. Lovely stained glass windows inside and very gold!! Our kids lit a 1 dollar candle as well.

It is worth a drop in and quick walk about. We stayed for about 5 minutes and felt we took most of it in. Worth the visit but not near the magnificence of Montreal or of course Paris. If you get s chance go to lower old Quebec and see the small but original Notre Dame.

We walked the city for a week and stopped at the Cathedral more than once. Beautifully landscaped entrance leads to an incredible interior. Not saying it'd St. Peter's or anything but it is very beautiful. Stunning architecture and an amazing feeling of peace. Nice to sit down and take it all in for a few minutes. If your in Old...

It was a very quiet, spiritual place. there were always people in there praying, or enjoying the means of the church. Very detailed and beautiful

I think is nice to go inside to have a look, $5 I think, for me is very beautiful!! I stay inside less than 10 mins because our tours rush to go back to the car. But I think is just a right time, 10 mins is enough, very small inside indeed.
