While visiting Montreal, my sister and I opted to visit this smaller, lesser known church in downtown Montreal. No lines to get in, no fee, just a warm welcome from the basilica docent. He told us about the history of the basilica, the Irish migration...More

This Basilica is absolutely amazing. My Irish heart found a home in Old Montreal. It is far more reverent and peaceful than NotreDame. It still feels like a church rather than the end of a ride at a Disney theme park. It is definitely worth...More

Just as beautiful as Notre Dame but in a different way. It's lighter and brighter and a bit less fussy, but it has glorious woodwork and other details. Plus, it's free to visit, so it's definitely worth a short stop if you're nearby.

As part of our touring in Old Montreal, we stopped to enjoy this historic church. So glad they were able to fund restoration and keep this going. Glad we visited.

The cathedral has historic connections with the Irish-Canadian community in Montreal, it is a national historic site of Canada, and it highlights...More

We attended mass here and it was slightly different from mass in Singapore. Even though it's a Basilica it felt more like a local church. We stayed in an apartment that faced the church and it was very convenient for us. There is a large...More

towards public art exhibits along its stylish, plotted
