Overview

The Notre-Dame-de-Lorette is a neoclassic masterpiece by renowned architect, Louis-Hippolyte Lebas. The church was consecrated in 1836 and its design finds inspiration in the basilicas of Rome. Four Corinthian columns mark the south facade while the three statues on its pediment represent faith, charity and hope. The sculptural rendition by Charles-François Lebœuf depicts angels bowing in adoration to the Virgin and Child. The interiors are an eclectic contribution of several great artists and features a collage of paintings dedicated to significant moments in the life and times of Mary. Marvel at the ornate choir and coffer ceiling in blue and gold, and soak in the beauty and tranquility.
