I love cathedrals. Real ones. This one is a little boring, from my point of view. Nothing really special about it. But, it is a nice place to rest while on your Old Quebec visit. You'll appreciate the silence, mainly on week days in the...More

My husband and I attended Sunday services. It was said in French but it was charming! Absolutely a beautiful church and right in the old district.

Good luck. I am guessing it will be very busy and very crowded. We were there in the “off” season and it was packed with people. Just too beautiful. Lower your photographic expectations and just try to soak it in. Do the... More

I believe the Cathedrale mentioned above is in the Old City within Quebec City. This is within walking distance from most areas of downtown near the old city. It is also a gorgeous church.
