20 Rue de Buade, Quebec City, Quebec G1R 4A1, Canada

Rising from a bustling plaza in the center of Upper Town, this impressive cathedral belongs to the oldest parish in North America. Rebuilt twice since its completion in 1647, the Neoclassical structure retains its original bell tower and portions of the 17th-century walls. Inside, a long nave is surrounded by Palladian-style arches with carved gilt columns, a ceiling painted with clouds, and stained-glass windows imported from Paris and Munich. The cathedral also has a gold-plated altar, three Casavant organs, and a crypt containing the remains of 20 former bishops. Guided tours include both the basilica and the crypt.
