We had the luxury of a private tour with only 15 people and all the time in the world. Our guide was very experienced AND funny (Marguerite) and gave us tons of background information on what we were looking at. We spent hours at the Basilica and were never bored as our senses were given a real workout! From the entryway with two majestic columns displaying discarded crutches, canes, braces, and everything else you can imagine to the artwork and mosaics, the details were simply amazing. Spending ony 30 minutes here would have been a "sin". Even my husband who generally grumbles at a trip to yet another cathedral was very impressed and never bored. The fact that this cathedral is built with donations of money and materials from all over the world is also impressive and shows how faith can draw people from many backgrounds together. A MUST SEE if you're in the area.

We enjoyed the architecture and peaceful atmosphere. The visit lasted about 30 minutes. A nice, pre-Charlevoix stop!

This church is amazing. There are tons of chapels inside- each extraordinarily decorated. There is beautiful mosaic throughout and several Michelangelo replica pieces. Across the street from the church, there are the stations of the cross laid out in sculpture as well as a few other smaller buildings worth a quick visit. This visit can be combined with a trip to Montmorency Falls for a great day out!

Pilgrimages have been made to St Ann de Beaupre for centuries so it was with high expectation that we visited on a picture perfect, if somewhat chilly, fall day. We were not disappointed, it is a beautiful Basilica in a beautiful setting, it does of course have extra significance to those of who believe in the Almighty, but even for non believers it is a sight which should not be missed

For those who are suffering and believe in Saints that can help heal, please visit this beautiful basilica. my mother suffers with scleroderma, an auto immune disease, so in desperation we took her to St. Anne and prayed. She went into remission and is still alive 46 years later. She sent her arm brace to be hung on the pillar. I will return there in the future and pray with all my heart full of thanks and praise. It is a remarkable place. I am saving to go when I retire.
