“A Charming Cathedral Church”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

The beautiful Cathedrale Notre-Dame-de-Quebec was worth the visit, even if just to see the place where Celine Dion was married. There is a golden lamp suspended before the altar that was donated by Louis XIV. It was a peaceful stop and a nice reminder of the gothic style of old.

“Beautiful Photogenic Cathedral”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

Take the time to take pictures. The light is best early in the day. This is a traditional ornate Catholic cathedral of the type one would expect to see in Europe and not on this side of the "Pond" It is worth an hour or so to visit it.

“Amazing recital”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

Lucked into a free Sunday evening recital by mezzo soprano Priscilla Ann Tremblay. A lovely way to take in the indescribable ornate setting of the cathedral while enjoying the performances of a gracious and first rate vocalist and pianist.

“Beautiful church”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

small but beautiful church in the center of a beautiful historic street full of many things to see. The church has been there for so many years and it looks like it was built yesterday.
