Cathédrale de Saint-Jérôme – (St. Jerome, Quebec)

St-Jerome is a small town of close to 70,000 located 60 kms (37 mi) north of Montréal. It is considered the gateway to the lower Laurentian mountains with it’s cottage country and ski resorts that are coveted by outdoor enthusiasts from the city and all over eastern North America.

We were in the area recently to have supper with visiting blog buddy Joanne Sisco before she embarked on her multi-day cycling adventure on the Le Petit Train du Nord rails-to-trails linear park.

While there we took a few moments between thunder showers to explore the main town square and of course its tallest building, the local Cathedral.

As is often the case, the current Cathedral, which was built in 1897, replaced the original church that the community had outgrown.

Built in the Neo-classical style of locally quarried stone the tallest of the towers is just over 80 ft (24 m) high.

Now I have to admit that I was a little underwhelmed by the look of most of the doors on this otherwise impressive structure.

Luckily however, thanks to the amazing late-day golden hour light that was peeking in among the clouds, I still manged to get some pretty nice shots.

Gorgeous stained glass!

And here are a few bonus doors on an old historical 240+ year-old home across from the Cathedral.

I saw a few other interesting old building I wished we had time to explore, but the light was fading and it was time to head home.

Hopefully we’ll find the time to head back there later this summer to explore further.

Thanks for looking 🙂
