There is lots of history in this lovely Cathedral. Be sure to see some of the large paintings along the sides dating back to the 1600’s depicting early interactions with indigenous people. The alter is stunning.

Attended a Sunday mass and was delighted to hear the organ and the choir join forces. It was a lovely uplifting experience.

This cathedral is well worth a visit, especially if you like churches and less crowds than Notre Dame. Different styling to Notre Dame and a small version of St Peter's. It is about a 10 minute walk from Notre Dame.

Not as ornate as Notre Dame, but then again this is free. If you need a contemplative spot, this is a REAL church, a working parish, where you can find a kneeler and do some thinking. It's beautiful, big, and full of little side alters...More

Really beautiful place. I strongly recommend visiting this cathedral. One of advantages is that there is no to many visitors and there is no entry payment.

An interesting and probably overlooked church in the heart of Montreal. Very peaceful and well worth a visit. Don't forget to check their shop for a souvenier that is different of Montreal.

Facade and main altar resembles St. Peter at Vatican, imposing architecture that let you feel minuscule. A place for spending some time out of bustling city

Walked in during our walk through the city - it became our landmark for the rest of our stay. There was a wedding scheduled, and we got to hear the organ. This is a beautiful place to sit and reflect.

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
