Quebec – Montmorency Falls and the  Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré

Dear Commons Community,

Yesterday, Elaine and I toured areas outside of Quebec City.

Our first stop was Montmorency Falls (above), a spectacular sight just 15 minutes outside of  Québec City.  The falls are 272.3 ft. tall, and 98.4 ft. taller than Niagara Falls but not as wide. 

We then visited the Albert Gilles Copper Art Museum and Boutique, a gem of a place to see exhibits of handmade metal work.  The demonstration in making copper objects by hand was an education.

Last on the tour was the  Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré 19 miles east of Quebec City.  It is magnificent both outside and inside.  It has been credited by the Catholic Church with many miracles of curing the sick and disabled. There are two columns in the Basilica that have dozens of crutches and walkers put there by people who claim to have been cured.

In sum, a good tour with something natural, something educational, and something beautiful.
