Urban landscapes: resting in the chapel

BASEMENT CHAPEL, SAINTE-ANNE-DE-BEAUPRE, NEAR QUEBEC CITY, CANADA

Hard to believe this isn’t the main sanctuary, but at the glorious, stunning Sainte-Anne-De-Beaupre Catholic cathedral, the main event is actually upstairs (here’s just one view of the upstairs sanctuary: http://wp.me/p2ccTX-cq). The distant person is my wife, patiently waiting me out.
According to Wikipedia, because of the popularity of the shrine, the building was enlarged several times to accommodate all the pilgrims. In 1876, the first basilica opened for worship. The former basilica was destroyed in a fire on March 29, 1922. The present-day basilica was built on the site of the prior church in 1926.
