Beautiful setting and church on the edge of the St. Lawrence River. Lovely grounds with the stations of the cross in statues.

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.

“Liked the restrooms?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

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 Cape Shrine is a wonderful treasure.

“Peaceful sanctuary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

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.

“Canada’s national shrine to the Blessed Mother”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

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 the supervision of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate.

Two other pluses - the lunch dining facility is very adequate, with several options available. We were in a large tour group and of course the food ran out for the latecomers but the staff were quick to do special order sandwiches. The other is the gift shop with an incredible range of art and religious objects on sale.
