Cathedral of the Holy Trinity

Québec City has two cathedrals, both in Upper Town: the Roman Catholic Notre-Dame and the Anglican Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, a block away. When it was consecrated in 1804, Holy Trinity had the distinction of being the first Anglican cathedral outside the British Isles. Back then its diocese included all of what was then called Upper and Lower Canada (the former corresponding to southern Ontario today, the latter Québec). Its reach still consists of large portions of Québec, though not Montreal. The cathedral's interior, a Palladian design in white with gold details, reflects the architectural trends in England at the beginning of the 19th century. Over the years, there have been reports of a ghostly woman appearing near the church's organ, but spectral appearances cannot be guaranteed. Note: The cathedral is open daily from May to November, but in the winter you need to arrange a visit in advance.
