Don't let the modest exterior of this basilica fool you into not stopping inside. Walk down the side street and climb the steps to enter through the "front" doors, and your eyes will not be disappointed. Especially on a sunny day, the stained glass windows...More

This is beautiful old basilica located in the heart of Montreal. The church dates to the 1800s and was build by the Irish. If you are around it, it is very much worth the visit inside as it is a wow moment.

We didn't plan on visiting, but as we were walking by saw the bronze statues perched on the top of the church. As we entered, it has such large scale pillars and dome, the sun streams in the stained glass windows. Church is the shape...More

Great old church - classified a Basilica - foundation of the Irish immigrants in Montreal . Outstanding architecture and wood craftsmanship especially in the hanging stairway to the choir loft

Smaller than the Basilica but just as awe inspiring. The money that is spent on these church’s gives you some idea of the wealth that these people had in the past.

I stayed at the Marriot just along the road from here, and it was the first stop on my sightseeing tour. Awesome building and great views of the Basilica and skyline if you take your photo from down the side road.
