This is a stunning Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré is well outside of Quebec City (30 km) in a small town on the Saint Lawrence River. It was a cold wintery day (in Spring!) but well worth the trip to see the impressive architecture. The first basilica opened in 1876 but was destroyed in a fire in 1922, the current basilica was built in 1926.
The interior of the basilica is equally as impressive and very ornate with beautiful leadlight windows.
A pilgrimage occurs each summer to the basilica which is said to have cured the sick and disabled and even has a lot of crutches and canes displayed near the entrance that people have apparently discarded once they have been cured!
