Description : This world famous basilica is massive, impressive and beautiful. It,s worth a visit for anyone going to Quebec City for a few days.
It has been the Mecca of devout pilgrims seeking a renewal of health for over 250 years, and is probably the most highly venerated shrine in America. The church is a massive and beautiful structure of gray stone. Within are huge pyramids of crutches and canes left by cripples and invalids healed by the intercession of the saint.A shrine of St. Anne has existed here since a miraculous cure was reported during construction of the first church in 1658. The present basilica dates from 1934 after an earlier church was destroyed by fire in 1922.
