To discover, see and do...
Built in 1879 by architect-contractor Gédéon LeBlanc, this Romanesque Revival style church was declared a historic monument in 2000. Frescoes from 1882 by painter François-Xavier-Édouard Meloche (1855-1914) cover the entire vault and the walls. Nine magnificent paintings, including ones by Brother Luc (1687), Noël-Nicolas Coypel (1714) and William Von Moll Berczy (1810), adorn the walls. There are also carvings by François Normand (1813) and Louis-Philippe Hébert (1882) as well as 19 remarkable stained-glass windows. The church mounts new theme exhibitions every year.
