A must see for everyone even if you're not religious . Took a cab from central Trois-Rivieres for around $16. Overlooking St. Lawrence on a beautiful day I spent time walking through the lovely grounds. The Basilica is beautiful. Stained-glass windows were incredible. Special place to spend some quiet time and reflect.

We stopped at the shrine on a bus tour. The church is pretty and nice. There is an outside walking area with displays. It is very attractive and you are right on the St Lawrence River, which makes it even prettier. What is wonderful for travelers is that they have a cafeteria. They had homemade food for a reasonable price.... More

Very nice building with good stained glass windows. The outside garden is a nice place to walk and you can visit the old chapel.It takes about one hour to visit the building and to walk the grounds.

The stained glass windows are stunningly beautiful! We were there early before the tour busses arrive and it was quiet and peaceful.

This is a beautiful octagonal-shaped church with interesting architectural features. However, the real beauty is found in walking the grounds and seeing the Rosary Bridge and Old Shrine.

Overlooking the St Lawrence river, this church has a beautiful setting. You don't have to be religious to appreciate the architecture and the magnificent stained glass windows. The church is well maintained and is a place of tranquility. There are a couple of " miracles" associated with the statue of the Virgin Mary one being that she opened her eyes... More

Although it was an off season visit, We enjoyed the shrine and the river side walk, The quiet neighborhood and the peace together with the breeze made us feel the presence of divine.

You don't have to be religious to appreciate the beautiful grounds and stations of Christ not to mention the basilica itself. Good size cafeteria and well stocked large gift shop that was a little bit overpriced but some nice pieces if you are into that kind of thing. Sacred statue of Mary who eyes were said to have once glowed.... More
