Notre-Dame-des-Victoires Church

Notre-Dame-des-Victoires Church

Overlooking historic Place Royale, where Quebec City was founded in 1608, this 300-year-old church has had a tumultuous history. Used as a place of refuge during major conquest battles, it was destroyed by fire in 1759 and has been restored numerous times over the centuries. Must see: On either side of the main altar, frescos painted in 1888 retrace the history of the church as well as that of the city.
