Église Saint-Charles-Borromée

Religious Sites

Constructed from 1828 to 1830 and named a heritage building in 1959, this church in honour of St. Charles Borromeo is a major neoclassical achievement by architect Thomas Baillairgé. Established canonically in 1693, the church parish contains a rich, though little-known, collection of notable works from Québec's art history, including paintings, textiles, goldware, silverware and sculptures from the 17th to the 20th centuries.
