Owner description: This famous 17th-century cathedral has been restored several times but still provides visitors with an ambiance of centuries past.

This is the type of place one needs to tour with explanations to support what is seen. No tours were available when we went but there were people available to welcome us and send us through the side door, which is supposed to be a religious experience. We understood the concept, but were confused by the process. Nevertheless, the church is magnificent with many examples of devotional works of art. The gift store leaves a lot to be desired, and no one was buying.

Thank dondedieu

The architecture of this church is breath-taking. Beautiful artwork through-out. It's open for the public and there was a very kind gentleman inside to answer all of our questions.

We arrived there and they were closing in ten minutes so we just could take a couple of pictures and then leave. It is a good place to visit if you are walking around the Old Québec

Right now while they are celebrating the 350th anniversary of the church, there is a sacred door from the Vatican on the side that you can only enter through (not exit). There are I believe only 7 of those doors around the world and none on this side of the Atlantic. The door will be sealed after this year. One of the friendly guides in the church came up to us on their own and explained everything.
