Lovel Cathedral in Quebec. The ceiling paintings are lovely and it was great to stop for mass and see it in full beauty.

The cathedral is a jewel of the city and not to be missed. I attended Mass there and if was a great experience. Everyone was kind and welcoming. The cathedral doesn’t have visitors hours, and is only open during Mass times. It closes down within...More

Not as flashy as Notre Dame in Montreal but the decor inside is really nice. There's no charge to go in just a donation box. The roof and the alter are definitely worth a look.

So this church was largely destroyed by fire in the 19th century. It is big and grand but if you have seen other Cathedrales around the world this one kis nothing special.

It is pretty inside. Remember to be respectful. No talking or carrying on inside. Be brief. Leave a donation, even if it is a modest one.

The basilica is beautiful and worth visiting when in Quebec city. It is very close to the center of the city, right across from city hall. The same named basilica in Montreal is the one i like more among the two, but this basilica still...More

The church does not have a well defined architectonical style and it is quite simple outside. However it is beautiful inside beside its importance for the catholicism in Québec.

I had actually walked past the cathedral a couple of times not realizing it was there primarily because it was covered in scaffolding and hoarding for works being done to the outside. It was on a tour that we were directed to it and what...More

Good luck. I am guessing it will be very busy and very crowded. We were there in the “off” season and it was packed with people. Just too beautiful. Lower your photographic expectations and just try to soak it in. Do the... More
