An historical marker on the grounds of the cathedral describes it's architecture and history. It is written in French and English. The English version is inscribed:

Built between 1800 and 1804, this refined example of Palladian
architecture heralded the introduction of British classicism
to Quebec City. Designed by Major William Robe and Captain
William Hall of the Royal Artillery, the Anglican cathedral
was adapted from St. Martin-in-the-Fields, London, and features
a rectangular plan and tripartite nave with lateral galleries.
Decorative elements inspired by the works of Italian architects
Andrea Palladio include the pediment, arcade and Ionic
pilasters. Seen as innovations in the period, these features
strongly influenced subsequent architecture in the city.
