It is seat of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Quebec, the oldest Roman Catholic parish church of North America and one of the largest churches in North America. The wood paneling in the Gothic Revival style and the blue glowing stained glass windows create an impressive atmosphere inside.
The Gothic interior of the Notre-Dame Basilica was designed by Victor Bourgeau, who was inspired by the Sainte-Chapelle in Paris.The interior was completed in 1880.
