Basilique Saint-Anne-de-Beaupre


Of all the churches we visited this was my favourite.

The ceilings are covered in mosaics with lots of shiny gold tiles.

The floor mosaics are in cooler colours.

There are lots of geometric mosaic patterns on the floors...

...and on the walls. All most inspiring.

In one of the chapels there is a coarser mosaic on each roof arch.

Not fine work but somehow very appealing by providing a human scale in this massive building.
