Vieux-Québec Churches

Cathédrale Holy Trinity

Just across Rue Sainte-Anne from the apartment is the Cathédrale Holy Trinity. Built around 1800. it is the cathedral of the Anglican Diocese of Québec.

Its bell-tower is home to 8 bells which are the oldest change-ringing peal in Canada.

Each morning booths are set up in the garden offering art, clothing and crêpes. By the way, the crêpe booth opens at 10.

Chalmers-Wesley United Church

On one of our walks we heard organ music. We followed our ears and entered Chalmers-Wesley United Church.

It turned out we had missed the organized concert but there was a young parishioner playing the massive organ.

La Basilique Notre-Dame

Around the corner from the apartment was the incredible La Basilique Notre-Dame.

There has been a church on this site since 1647. One of the earlier churches  was destroyed during the Siege of Québec in 1759.

Cour intérieure du Petit Séminaire

While not actually a church Cour intérieure du Petit Séminaire fits in this group.

Next door to La Basilique Notre-Dame, Cour intérieure du Petit Séminaire has a striking entrance and courtyard.
