A breathtaking display of history and architecture. My teenage daughters were not very excited to go, but absolutely changed their minds once we entered. We have never seen such a grand church and were awestruck. We are looking forward to a return visit in the summer. The back area is an exceptional site to see and the artwork of Jesus... More

Amazing architecture and beautiful colors. The light inside the Basilica is absolutely amazing. The detailed carving on the wood is intricate. Just when you think there cant be anything more beautiful, you go in the back and see the chapel which is bright with gold! Amazing views all around.

Couldn't believe my eyes in here, it really is so beautiful. At only $6 to get in it's worth it, there are multiple places to light a candle for loved ones.

This church is filled with many intricately carved statues, stained glass windows, and the masonry of the church itself is something to behold.

We are not religious people, but even so this is worth a visit.

As a local, we rarely go see all the tourists attractions in our town. But yet, we re-realized how beautiful and breath taking this basilica is! The light show by Moment Factory at night is a definite must! If you go during mass hours, it is free entrance!

A modest replica of the Note-dame in Paris, this basilica is certainly worth visiting. Centrally located in Old Montreal where many histrical attractions, restaurants and the old port.

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighbourhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic centre of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its centre, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theatre.
