Au fil des clochers lévisiens / Circuit touristique de patrimoine religieux
Discover Lévis' rich religious heritage and this city's fascinating history of bells.
This route, created by the Comité du patrimoine religieux lévisien, includes guided tours of two century-old neoclassic-style churches: Saint-Joseph, the first church erected on Québec's south shore in 1675 and Notre-Dame, built in 1850 and listed as a historical monument in 2003. You will also see the Pierre-Georges-Roy Library, found in the old Collège de Lévis chapel, which dates back to 1900.
Our knowledgeable guides will take you through the history, architecture and the artistic gems created by great Québec names, such as Jobin, Bourgault, Vallières and Nincheri, as well as the fabulous Mitchell pipe organs. Guided tours for groups (minimum of 10 participants) are available with prior reservation.
Voluntary contributions are appreciated.
