Basilique Cathedrale - Notre-dame-de-quebec - Review

No one had the remotest idea that what started as a small church in 1647 would be a one of the popular tourist attractions in the future. If the remains of the church could talk, they would have told a heck of a story- from battle damages to fires, there’s no telling what the church hasn’t experienced.

The Notre-Dame Basilica you see today, in all of its grandeur, is a result of the constant repair and renovation; after every work of repair and renovation, the church grew in size. The last expansion of sorts was conducted in 1952 and ever since, the Basilica hasn’t grown in size physically.

The interiors are worth a look though most of the original treasures of the church were lost in the fateful fire of 1922. The crypt makes for a nice tour, but you’ll have to sign up for a guided tour for that.

Basilique Cathedrale - Notre-dame-de-quebec, Quebec Reviews

  • Amazing decorations filled with faith. A place for quiet times and meditation. You should visit when in Montreal!

  • If you are in Old Quebec City, dont miss the opportunity to visit this amazing basilica! Google map directions to walk up the hill to the church is confusing. The streets to walk up the hill are not friendly to stroller. It will be a bumpy ride for the kids in the stroller. The church is always crowded with visitors.

  • Beautiful stained glass windows. Also the resting place of a lesser known Saint, which is pretty cool. Smack dab in the middle of the city, is a place of solace and beauty. Very easy to pray here.

  • Cameras are allowed. There is a small entry fee around 7 cad. Also church closes at 4:30pm sharp so you need to make it before that. Light show begins somewhere in the evening around 6:30pm. Overall the architecture is amazing. The first floor is accessible to people and there are ongoing religious sessions where priests introduces the people to Christianity and key aspects.

  • Beautiful cathedral with stunning artwork and a lot of historical explanation. The right front entrance is accessible for strollers and wheelchairs.
