The interior of this church is breath taking. It is decorated in the very old style that Catholic churches had in the past. No charge to enter. While Mass is in session, there is a sign for tourists not to disturb the service. This church has a Holy Door that was dedicated by one of the recent popes. I did... More

Four chorus members filled the church with beautiful voices! The cathedral is simply beautiful inside. Mass felt extra special from being in this beautiful worship space.

You can't miss this church if you are walking through the Old Quebec City. It was free to visit and beautiful. If is not nearly as large as Notre Dame in Paris or Montreal, but is lovely just as it is.

We came across this old church while walking around the historic area of the city. There was no charge to go inside. It is beautiful inside. Not quite as elaborate as Notre Dame in Montreal but nice also.

The inside of North America's oldest Catholic church is simply decorated but beautiful at the same time. The admission is free to enter and in the center of Upper town so it is an easy sight to visit.

Nice art work, but still a church which become a commercial attraction:) Worth a visit, but as in every church which turn into money source you can expect lot of tourist, blitzes of the cameras and people staring at the ceiling.. Anyway for the time when was build versus the existing technology back than is a great architectural work.

We thoroughly enjoyed this enormous basilica. It is really worth adding tours of the crypt and the museum. We learned so much about Catholic Church and Quebec history. A must see in Quebec. Very friendly and well educated guides

I was in awe. Speechless really. It's hard to put into words how beautiful this Cathedral is, but if you appreciate architecture, not to mention if you enjoy being a pilgrim, it's worth a visit.
