It was highly recommended by our friend to take Route 20 instead of Route 40 driving back from Quebec City to Montreal. It was a longer drive but since it was recommended, why not.. What a surprise, this relative modern church is just amazing huge. From the top, I believe it is an octagonal structure with the organ facing the... More

I have visited this facility on numerous occassions over several years. I always enjoy touring the beautiful grounds found here. There are flowers and gardens, ample palces to sit and reflect, and wonderful walkways. The churches, the Basilica and the Chapel are steeped in history and so impressive. The stained glass windows in the Basilica alone can take several hours... More

People have to know that this is a very special place as it display a very beautiful basilica, surrounded by quite a landscape. Go into the woods and follow the stations of the cross in statues, ending with the rosary bridge. My parents used to bring me here when I was little, lots of souvenirs... If in the area, stop...

Our Lady of the Cape Shrine requires a less-than-scenic route to drive to it. The Basilica is located amidst closely built urban neighborhoods of narrow roads. However, when you arrive, the location is very beautiful. The building rests on land along the St. Laurence River complete with grassy grounds and even its own monument park and rosary bridge. The original... More

Beautifully preserved Basilica and gardens. The architecture is incredible as are the stained glass windows The gardens are very inviting. The Rosary bridge, the Stations of the Cross are lovely. A beautiful visit for sure. Right on the banks of the St. Lawrence River. There is a gift shop, restaurant and bathrooms on site.

How sad a person would attend the culturally significant location of Our Lady of the Cape Shrine and refer to it as ugly, yet happy to use it's washrooms. We see what we expect to see at times and what is in our hearts. Sometimes prior research before a visit yields great benefit to one's experience. Our Lady of the... More

This shrine is not to be missed! The basilica is beautiful, serene, and creatively constructed. The grounds are stunning and the whole atmosphere is ethereal and peaceful. Believer or not, this lovely spot is worthwhile visiting.

it's a very special place. The religious significance of the place - the miracle of the eyes - is clear from all the literature available and the fact that Pope John Paul 2 visited as a pilgrim with 75,000 Catholics attending was impressive. The chapel itself is big and conducive to meditation and contemplation. The grounds are well manicured, under... More

I used to live nearby this Shrine. It's an impressive place. Unfortunately, it requires lots of maintenance, so it has lost some of its beauty, but nevertheless, it remains a place to see if you go to Trois-Rivieres. You can visit the inside of the Shrine, and then have lunch outside, but the St-Lawrence River. Great view. There is a... More
