Our Lady of the Cape Shrine, Trois-Rivieres
(4.7/5 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.

  • For those that spirituality, it must to be. A visit to the shrine and gardens, it concerns all religions.

  • We are stopped too briefly on October 4, 2016, for lack of time and we had not planned a comprehensive visit. My wife remembered of tender childhood memories when his aunt took him sometimes with her for a visit to this legendary sanctuary. There is possibility to stay of collection for fans. Just walk outside in this peaceful setting among many squirrels and sit on one of the many benches watching the River, is worth a visit regardless of our religious beliefs if ever there. We took several pictures that are better words if you want to view them. We loved our visit and recommend that book you some time if you ever pass by this place. Salaberry de Valleyfield, Quebec, Canada on 6 November 2016 written notice.
