Bishop’s University and St. Mark’s Chapel
Bishop’s University is recognised for its splendid architecture which has been used as a backdrop for TV and movie sets. Founded in 1843, it is the only unilingual English university outside of Montreal. In 1857, St. Mark's Chapel, an integral part of the university, was built. Following the English Church Colleges model, similar to Oxford, the chapel is inspired by the 18th-century gothic style. Carefully maintained and magnificently conserved, the chapel was declared a “bien culturel” by the Ministère des Affaires Culturelles du Québec in 1989.Learn more
