Views from St. Joseph's Oratory
Back in Quebec... the Basilica stands on top the mountain and views from the seven stories are spectacular. There are 230 stairs from lower gardens to first level of Basilica and pilgrims are known to climb them on their knees. I wished I had enough time at the shrine to choose that option. Shrine is six levels high with chapels, Brother Andre's tomb, museum, gift shops and basilica. Full day is needed to fully witness the glory.
