  • What an spectacular piece of architecture! So many impressive baroque features and art pieces to take in. A person certainly feels small standing under this vast ceiling and in this holy space. Very busy, but quiet. Gift shop I didn't stay too long, but expect this would be an extremely interesting structure to take a tour of.
  • Beautiful cathedral! I also liked the room with information about Laval. Must visit if you're in Quebec City.
