I Visited the Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré in 2014

Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré is a well-known destination located in Quebec, Canada. Actually, I didn’t know about the place before. I fortunately had a chance to visit the basilica as it was on my way back to Toronto from Quebec, and my uncle intended to visit it for his spiritual worship.

At the Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré, people come to pray for health. Honestly, I’m not a Catholic, I even don’t have a religion, so I don’t really believe absolutely in magic. Nevertheless, in the hall, we can easily see crutches left by people who have recovered as a way to leave their illness at the basilica, my uncle said. Grave is the adjective that I see here.

Outside the church is a big garden which gives a more relaxing atmosphere to visitors. If you are a good photographer, you can find a lot of good spots to take beautiful pictures.


Besides the garden, there are some gift shops where you can find many souvenirs at affordable prices. The gifts are varied from postcards, natural stones, t-shirts, etc. I have found some quite nice necklets and bracelets made from natural stones. I believe they are good for feng shui.

Just a few miles away from the Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré is a 74-meter waterfall that can be accessed by both footpaths or a bridge. Absolutely, the waterfall is really beautiful and ideal for visiting and taking some pictures.
