    Sainte Anne de Beaupre

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Each year, more than a million and a half pilgrims and visitors come to the Shrine of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré for a time of peace, calm, and prayer.

    The shrine is located 35 kilometers from Quebec.

    Cardinal Maurice Roy consecrated the present Basilica on July 4, 1976.

    The shear size of the structure is what makes it so impressive and the inside of the building is equally as impressive.

    Basilique Ste-Anne de Beaupre

    This world famous basilica is massive, impressive and beautiful. It's worth a visit for anyone going to Quebec City for a few days.

    I recommend not taking the highway but drive along the centuries old chemin du Roy where you will see beautifully preserved 16th century houses still inhabited. Sometimes, the 20th generation of the same family own the houses !

    You will then see some of the highest waterfalls in North America (Montmorency).

    Once passed this, you will see the huge basilica from very far. The original church was built in 1658 and this one is one of the biggest in Canada.

    The Cathedral of Sainte Anne de Beaupre draws Catholics from all over the world. It is a Basilica, which for Catholics means that miracles have taken place there. For anyone, religious or not, it is a stunning building and a very interesting place to visit. There are plenty of good road signs pointing the way, and it's an easy 15-km drive east of the city. There is an unusual statue of Mary and Jesus in the front of the cathedral, with both wearing crowns of maple leaves, the symbol of Canada.

    ST-Anne-de-Beaupré is a big church where a lot of pilgrims come and ask St-Anne's favors. St-Anne is Jesus's Grand'ma! (true, true)
    Inside is nice and it's the largest church I've ever been too. You can buy all sorts of religious stuff. I'm not very religious but i still go every time i'm in Quebec city and recommend it to everyone. Just follow the instructions to ST-Anne-De-Beaupré..which will also lead you to the falls and Orleans. But the church is about a 10-15 minutes drive further..

    Just kidding. Absolutely...

    Just kidding. Absolutely EVERYBODY visits St. Anne de Beaupre. This pilgrimage site contains relics (e.g., a forearm) of the Virgin Mary's mother, Anne.

    In the front of the church hanging on the wall are dozens of canes and crutches of those who have been healed as a result of St. Anne's intercessions. Whew.

    This magnificent cathedral honors Sainte Anne, a very miracolous saint. The church is located at about 25 minutes from Quebec City. If you are lucky you'll catch a mass, sung by locals.

    The first chapel on this site was built in 1658. The present Basilica is the fifth church to be built here since 1658.
