We stopped off here en route from Montreal to Quebec City. A magnificent large church together with the smaller original church, beautiful parklike grounds and a large canteen styled restaurant. Plenty of parking too. A peaceful spot to gather your thoughts and rest a while

Everything huge. The church, the grounds, the statues, the rosary bridge, the scenery overlooking the St. Lawrence River. Well worth a stop.

Came here as a pilgram. The Saint Lawrence sea way gives this site a calm and relaxing feeling. Great to take time to pray and reflect. The old church holds the statue of mother Mary that opened its eyes. Very intimate space. The basillica is...More

Everything in this place is great. The energy in the old chapel, the magnificent new Basilica, the Christ Via Crucis and other statues in the beautiful gardens, the peace. There's been about 30 years I use to visit this place.
