“Stunning Cathedral!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

This reminds one of the great cathedrals of Europe. Not quite as large, perhaps, but the stained glass and ornate archeticture is really fun for the eye. It was especially fun for us as some of my wife's ancestors were either married or buried here...a long time ago.

It is also worthwhile to compare this with the Anglical Cathedral of Quebec, which is onloy about 5 blocks away. Both are old (by North American standards) and both are beautifully built and maintained. One could spend 10 minutes for 10 hours in either...depending upon your interest in the various wonders on offer: stained glass, organ (and bell) concerts, religious services, choir concerts, historical descriptions (both video and print), etc., etc.

What a beautiful old cathedral right in the middle of Quebec City. The inside was gorgeous and well maintained.

“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.
