 town, Québec region, southern Quebec province, Canada. It lies along the St. Lawrence River near the mouth of the Sainte-Anne. Settled about 1650, the town, about 20 miles (32 km) northeast of the city of Quebec, has been a noted Roman Catholic pilgrimage centre since 1658, when its first chapel was built, according to tradition, by shipwrecked French sailors who reached land there. A miracle, the curing of a local resident's rheumatism, was reported in the same year. Numerous miraculous cures have been reported since, and the shrine has been visited by pilgrims from throughout Canada and the United States. The present basilica was completed in 1963; constructed in the 12th-century Romanesque-Gothic style, it can accommodate 9,000 worshippers. Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré is the headquarters of the French Redemptorists and the seat of their college. An attraction of the town is a huge cyclorama of Jerusalem depicting the day of the Crucifixion. Pop. (2006) 2,803.
