Eglise Notre Dame des Victoires, Quebec City

Religious Site · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
From its single white steeple to its grey stone exterior, Eglise Notre Dame des Victoires evokes all the charm you'd expect from the old part of the city. Construction began in 1687 in the Colonial French style, underlined by the intricate white and gold details on the interior. The interior pays tribute to Quebec faith and history with representative sculptures and motives throughout, and the naval ship suspended from the ceiling is not to be missed. A British bombardment destroyed the original church, leading to its 1816 rebuild. The church has since been named a National Historic Site of Canada.

  • I was in Quebec city but I haven't had visit inside of Church because it's not open every day and you have to check from website when it will be open. But I have had a very good time there. There are lots of restaurants and Gift shops around Church You can have a rest and see beautiful colorful wall which was history of Quebec. There was a guide who was explaining motifs and characters which were painted on the wall. When you walk in front of wall you think it's real . It's fun to take a photo. Very special experience.
  • An amazing ancient church. Takes magnificent pictures. Sooo much history. Amazing.
  • Church at the center of lower Quebec City. Wonderful charm! There was a wedding in progress while we were there, otherwise we would have seen the inside. The town square is super picturesque! Relax and enjoy this corner of the world.
  • Right in the heart of old Quebec. It's very busy here, but take a minute and walk through. The unique feature is the wooden ship model suspended from the ceiling. A treasure found in the chapels cellar.
  • Cool area to see. I really like vieux quebec, Notre Dame was pretty cool. Just know to go inside that they charge but it's still plenty to see on the outside if you don't want to pay. A lot of the surrounding area has plenty of food, art & shops to fill the time. I've gone twice and still want to return again.
