As with a few Cathedrals and many Catholic Churches worldwide, this has been ravaged by fire more than once even if 'officially' it is 350 years old. Compared to many others, it does not have a huge forecourt. Its nave was impressive and altar fit for purpose. It was serene as I tried to visit as late as possible in... More

A short walk from the Hotel Frontenac. The main naive was under scheduled refurbishment, but we were able to enter on the side and it is a beautiful cathedral and will be awesome when the renovations are complete!

It was very beautiful inside which you couldn't tell from the outside. I always like going into churches to see the architecture and paintings and other art work.

You will NOT be disappointed with a visit to the ornately decorated Basilique Cathedral Notre Dame de Quebec, but as of January, it is CLOSED for renovations that will take until at least summer as far as we can tell.

Currently under construction and refurbishment, but you can still take a peak inside to get an idea of the lovely church that it is

It is a gorgeous church. If you are in Vieux Ville Quebec, you can walk inside and look around. You can spend as much time as you like.
