How can you not visit this church whose steeple acts as a beacon within the old, walled city when you look from beyond?! Inside you will be wowed by the modern stained glass windows at the opposite end of the church, note the older, traditional stained glass windows (one referenced with Jacques Cartier) and then find his simple tombstone placed...

An impressive cathedral with even more impressive history. Built in 12th century, it was severely damaged in WWII but very nicely restored.

This is a lovely cathedral in the epicenter of the city centre. The architecture is stunning. The stained glass windows are gorgeous and acoustics are exceptional. Luckily, the church survived World War II with only the spire being replaced.

fantastic imposing building; right in the heart of intra muros. step inside and you are instantly transported to a quiet place of worship. i love to take visitors here to get away from the hustle and bustle of the outside world.

Located in the Restaurant district with the entrance not easily found - but well worth while going to the other side and visiting this Cathedral. Check notices for Free recitals and concerts!
