Description:
The Notre-Dame de Quebec parish is the oldest parish in North America. Even though the Notre-Dame de Quebec basilica-cathedral has been twice destroyed by fire over the centuries, it has always been reconstructed on the site of the original church, which was built in 1647. The décor of the present-day cathedrale is simply astonishing. The sanctuary will amaze you with its gold-plated baldaquin, main altar and episcopal canopy. There are also magnificent stained-glass windows, paintings and the Sanctuary lamp that was a gift from Louis XIV. Being the seat of the bishop within the Quebec Diocese, there are former bishops of the diocese, as well as four governors of Quebec intombed in the crypt. There is also a chapel consecrated to François de Laval, the first bishop of Quebec. Quebec City, Quebec, Canada
