Inspirock Rating:
4.4/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web
From its single white steeple to its grey stone exterior, 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.

  • This modest and very old church has an impressive and beautiful altar. Spend a few minutes absorbing its peace. 
  • We married more than 20 years ago in this magnificent little church built for sailors of the new-France. Even today she stands straight and proud, Queen of the Place Royale. Open for visits (except during religious ceremonies which is still held). Participate in a fine tradition and buy rolls of Ste-Geneviève (which said, you will protect and will give you what you need).

  • Met Flake of Rammstein after visiting the church on july 16, 2016. He was doing his ritual walk around the city and my girlfriend recognized him even though being dressed very casual. Met him in front of the church! He was kind enough to pose for a picture with my girlfriend! Very nice man. Miracle indeed!
