Located on this site since 1647, the Cathedral has twice been destroyed by fire throughout the centuries.
A previous iteration of the church was destroyed during the Siege of Quebec in 1759. It was rebuilt from plans by Gaspard-Joseph Chaussegros de Léry draughted in 1743. The belltower, however, was designed by Jean Baillairgé, who also oversaw construction. The interior was designed by Jean Baillairgé and his son François from 1786–1822. In 1843, François' son, Thomas, suggested a reconstruction of the façade to resemble the church of Sainte-Geneviève in Paris, resulting in the finest Neo-classic façade in Québec. The cathedral was richly decorated with impressive works of art: baldaquin, canopy, episcopal throne dais, stained glass windows, paintings, and chancel lamp (a gift of Louis XIV).
In 1922 the church was again gutted by fire, only to be restored by architects Maxime Roisin and Raoul Chenevert.
Raoul Chenevert (architect) added a presbytery beside the Cathedral, 1931-32

Worth downloading for full effect. excellent.
Great processing :)
Exceptional process. Not sure if there is a yellow color cast or not.
Yes! I like a lot!
Everything that can be down-loaded should be. Perhaps the mahogany wain-coating is a bit over-saturated in foreground but Wow just the same.
Top work !!
Great example of what to aim for!
Wow, Wonderful Shot!!!
