The magnificent Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré is found just east of Québec City.
Built in 1926 on the site of churches dating from 1600, it has been credited by the Catholic Church with many miracles of curing the sick and disabled.
This is a major ski area in winter and there are many cottages which are used in all seasons.
I visited the cottage area located near three mountains which are said to resemble beavers (castors).
I will identify it at the end of the post.
With its brilliant flowers and odour in spring, this is Lilac in seed.
Is there anything as tranquil
As a brightly glowing jonquil
That stands in sweet serenity,
A part of nature’s tapestry? – William Wordsworth (1770 – 1850)
