  • The information on the sign outside the door is not up to date. Tours are ONLY on Sunday, Mass is Tuesday & Thursday at 12:05. I wish I had known this. I would have loved to see the whole church...

  • My wife and I tried to visit the Notre Dame basilica and gift shop over 2 days (Tuesday and Wednesday). Both times, the doors were locked. While disappointing, we were able to visit other basilicas....  more

  • What an spectacular piece of architecture! So many impressive baroque features and art pieces to take in. A person certainly feels small standing under this vast ceiling and in this holy space. Very busy, but quiet. Gift shop I didn't stay too long, but expect this would be an extremely interesting structure to take a tour of.
  • Beautiful cathedral! I also liked the room with information about Laval. Must visit if you're in Quebec City.
  • Gorgeous in person. We plan on going back during non-mass hours out of respect for the individuals participating in the services. Beautiful architecture; looking forward to seeing the inside in the next day or so.
  • Most beautiful place in Quebec. Visited this place before few days and that visit was unforgettable. Very large, uncrowded, quiet and relaxing atmosphere in allover church.
  • Stunning! A work of art. Majestic and an absolutely must see even if you are not religious or catholic. Worth the drive from Quebec City .
