Currently under major interior renovation

We were disappointed by the renovation scaffolding and inaccessibility of the sanctuary during our visit.

I'm sure this is a delightful attraction the rest of the year but it's under reconstruction at the moment so 3/4 of it is inaccessible or behind sheets or scaffolding. The works aren't due to be finished for several months, which is a real shame.

To be honest I didn't feel comfortable to go there, cause this is Catholic cathedral and I belong to different religion. However you religion doesn't mean there. Amazing example of Gothic architecture. Place number one to visit in Montreal.

The Cathedrale should look really good and grand, but it is now under renovation, you cannot see much inside.

Amazing detail in the interior architecture but it is currenlty undergoing renovations and much is obscured by boards and scaffolding. Still worth going in since there was no charge and still enough is visible. Donations happily accepted.

The Cathedral is located quite centrally, just down from Dufferin Terrace and the Fairmont Chateau Frontenac hotel. Generally though I found Quebec City to be a bit short of signposts and maps.

Beautiful church and a place to not miss out on your visit. I did not really feel comfortable inside because I think it is supposed to be a sacred(holy) place and not a place where anybody cn just walk in as they wish.
