As the second largest Marian sanctuary in North America, the Sanctuaire Notre-Dame-du-Cap
welcomes 450,000 visitors and pilgrims every year. Thousands of them gather when the gardens are illuminated during Noël en Lumière. Christmas market, concerts and religious celebrations take place during this event. In summer, the Festival de l’Assomption is a must-see event. Families, couples and friends are invited to gather at the Sanctuaire Notre-Dame-du-Cap
, a visited place since 1888.
