Our Lady of the Cape Shrine, Trois-Rivieres
(4.6/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Our Lady of the Cape Shrine attracts visitors with its architectural and historical significance. The shrine is the largest Marian shrine in Canada and the country's national shrine to the Blessed Mother. The very first church was built in 1659; it was later replaced by a smaller wooden church in 1720 which stands today as the oldest church in Canada in which mass is celebrated daily. The grand basilica, with its colorful stained-glass windows, was erected in 1955. The basilica features a 38 m (125 ft) tall dome. Tour the structure, the gift shop, and restaurant just a stone's throw from the St. Lawrence River. A visit to Our Lady of the Cape Shrine represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Trois-Rivieres vacation generator to plot your vacation.

  • This is the Christmas light event. Very beautiful gardens lit up on the edge of the St-Lawrence River (thousands of lights). A Christmas market with over 20 exhibitors (houses of other exhibitors inside and outside). I found the atmosphere relaxing. Ideal for those who have children. Kudos to the volunteers. Normand

  • The sanctuary is quite magnificent. The architecture is breathtaking and the garden is very beautiful. It is a nice place to go for a walk or to collect. There is also a small shop "memories" and a small café where can go to warm up during the winter or simply to take a break.

  • Great places to go for a quiet walk on the edge of the water. The Basilica is superb. In addition, in time holiday, not to say Christmas, a lighting system is installed on the ground. In addition, several small local producer kiosks are also present for the occasion.
