The ruins of Champlain’s initial colony were covered by the construction of Notre-Dame-des-Victoires, one of the oldest cathedrals in North America. The church was extensively destroyed during the Siege of Quebec and was rebuilt in 1763. The interior design reflects the heritage and beliefs of Quebecers. Inside the church are several votive gifts and a model of the Brézé, the ship commanded by the marquis of Tracy. Tiny buns are blessed and distributed on the day of St. Genevieve, the patron saint of the church, as has traditionally been the custom.
