  • So certainly there is nothing absolutely amazing to visit, especially since the Church was closed during our stay. It remains no less that she is not only beautiful but is also regarded as one of the cultural and architectural city symbol. And as she is super easy to access it would be too stupid to not look.

  • The chapels have always attracted me and it was lovely. All wooden, this differs from our cathedrals. The contrast of the colors, the bright red and white snow, a few tombs in the lawn that surrounds the chapel. Don't miss if you go to Tadoussac with the hotel in the same colors in the background. Nice view on the St-Lawrence River.
