This is a must see place if you travel to Montreal. Verify the schedule so that you can also enjoy their organ concert while you tour around the basilica.

Well situated in the old Montreal, the Basilique Notre-Dame is a must see. The church is well preserved and still in operation.

Looking at the facade, I wouldn't have guessed it would be so beautiful inside. According to the tour guide, it was named as one of the Major Basilicas by the Vatican, which is something that is not easy to acquire. And it definitely deserves to...More
