For a leisurely scenic drive, take this trip along the St Lawrence River.
With more than 1.5 million visitors and pilgrims visiting the shrine each year, Ste-Anne-de-Beaupré has become one of North America's most important Catholic sites. The Scala Santa, at Ste-Anne-de-Beaupré, built in 1891, contains a replica of the Holy Stairs that Christ climbed before being sentenced to death by Pontius Pilate. The Memorial Chapel was built to commemorate the third church. The impressive cross-shaped building is covered with granite and lighted by more than 200 stained-glass windows. Stroll on your own on the lovely grounds of the basilica built in neo-Roman style.
Drive along the Beaupré Coast, stopping at the 270-foot Montmorency Falls to enjoy the impressive view as the water of the Montmorency River roars down the cliff to meet with the St Lawrence River.
You have time to walk the nature paths near the falls or enjoy browsing in the gift shop.
