This is a very unusual building in that it is a cut-down version of St Peters in Rome including the canopy over the altar (Bernini) but without his colonnade outside. It does not have the presence of St Peters which is many times the size.
This cathedral has about a dozen large paintings on the inside perimeter of the church about early French missionary explorers. This church is less ornate than the Basilica Notre Dame. It is still worth a visit (free) and tour around. Unfortunately, there is not a...More
We stopped here on our way back to our hotel when it started snowing. We ended up hearing mass in French. It was beautiful. The acoustic was good. The cathedral is supposed to be a small replica of the St. Peter’s Cathedral in Rome. There...More

What are you looking for to shop in the plateau? The best shopping is downtown. Surprised by the restaurant choices. Jardin Nelson is very casual and outdoor dining vs expensive Milos and Gibbys.
