The Basilique stands in the Historic District of Old Québec! And in 1989 it became a National Historical site. And if that isn’t enough to impress you maybe the fact that it is part of the UNESCO World Heritage List will 😉
The Notre Dame Basilique was declared a historical monument in 1966, this was done to preserve the building. You can find guided tours daily in french or english.
There is beautiful art work all around the Basilique.
And there is a private prayer room/chapel for those wishing to have a moment of silence in prayer.
On the left side of the Basilique you will find a holy door which is so far the only holy door opened outside of Europe. On April, 2015, Pope Francis announced a Holy Year/Jubilee. During this time December 12 2015 until November 20 2016, dioceses from across the world will be invited to organize pastoral activities related to mercy.
- This church is in a great location and can be easily included on route to the Chateau Frontenac, and into Lower Old Town Quebec City.
- A Must See when Visiting Quebec City!
