    Right next to the Frontenac Castle is this quite original Anglican cathedral. The Interior is quite sober, quiet, a majestic organ and of beautiful stained glass windows. Note that the bells are very lively during the day, a little too much for my taste also. In short, beautiful religious building of style to visit.

Where to stay in Quebec City

Most accommodations cluster on the west side of the St. Lawrence River, with the city's split-level old town offering the widest range of options and best access to top attractions. Stay in the upper town to be close to the castle and enjoy views over the river. What the lower town lacks in panoramas, it makes up for in historic charm and access to riverside cafes and restaurants. If you want a less-touristy experience, consider the up-and-coming neighborhood of St. Roch, whose cafes, bars, restaurants, and artistic spaces make it an alternative traveler's paradise.
