Église de Saint-Grégoire-Le-Grand

Bécancour ( Centre-du-Québec )

This neoclassical jewel of Québec’s religious architecture was designated an historic monument in 1957. Some of the church’s woodwork was carved in France, while the tabernacle and altarpiece come from the sanctuary of the Église des Récollets in Montréal. Certain items of furniture found in the choir have been designated as cultural property. On neoclassical, its monumental façade screen has a central front building Ionic flanked by two towers topped by a steeple. Sacristy stone rectangular and a floor, is grafted to the apse in the extension of the choir. Located in the heart of St. Gregory area of the city of Bécancour, the church dominates the institutional core, which also includes the rectory, the convent and the old school, and enjoys a protected area.
