If this church is open, during your next visit, it's worth your time to go inside and observe the beautiful alter, stained glass windows ... and more. We did observe , what appeared to be street people, sitting outside the church, but presented no problem.

Unsure what the status is here but it was closed with an awful lot of homeless people encamped. It has been closed for a while as dirt and trash has accumulated.

Don't miss this one. Lovely interior. Also nice for a quiet pause to reflect. Take your camera but turn off your flash and hold it steady.

The inside of the church reminds me of the churches that we visited in France - very ornate. It is very beautiful.

People were respectful so that you could visit, light a candle, and still enjoy the architectural beauty and historical significance of the building.

Beside the Avenue Cartier, in which I had became acquainted for the first time,with the everyday life of Quebec City, the other very important street was for sure, the Rue St.Jean. This last one takes its beginning at the intersection of Chemin St.Foy and Avenue de Salaberry in which I had lived, and leads straight forward to the east, that... More

St-Jean-Baptiste Church is a MUST SEE. Everybody needs to visit this church at least once in a lifetime. The church is situated west of the Old Town, on rue St-Jean. It is the heart of the old Faubourg St-Jean-Baptiste also worth a visit with its nice shops, bars and people. On you way, stop and visit the Old St-Matthew Cemetery... More

This Church is probably among the most beautiful I've ever visited, is patrimony of Quebec, inside is beautiful but also inviting, nice friendly people show you around, a hidden jewel in the city.

The 19th century church sits quietly and nondescript along rue Saint-Jean. Don't let the weathered and grungy exterior fool you. You will be amazed at how incredibly ornate the interior is. Take note of the extravagantly gilded altar and the marble pulpit. High up on the walls are beautiful stained-glass windows which portray significant moments in the life and times... More
