Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré, Québec, Canada (Beaupre) - 1658 - The basilica in Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré was initially a shrine to honour Saint Anne.


On March 8, 1658, a man by the name of Etienne de Lessard donated two frontal acres from the West end of his property to the Catholic Church so that a chapel could be built. This chapel eventually became the site of the modern-day basilica. It was built for two reasons: to provide a place of worship for the new settlers in the area and to house a miraculous statue of St. Anne.
