This is ok to see. I'm not a must see all the churches person, but it is very nice to see. Every church you see has something unique to see, as this one is very nice.

Quickly stop in as you walk along the cobblestone streets of Old Quebec. Beautiful church in the heart of the tourist district.

Beautiful church with wonderful architecture. Disappointing to see a gift shop hidden at the back though.

A step back in time.... Over the top architecture and design gives way to a spiritual peace. Easy to move around this beautiful church while reading and reflecting of the past. A must see!

Awe-inspiring, in the true sense of the words. It felt like a truly holy place. The golden representation over the altar of Jesus risen, as opposed to Jesus crucified, was strikingly beautiful.
