Even more beautiful than expected. It's incredibly grand and the blue hues throughout the church are just gorgeous. This gothic style cathedral is a must see.

We live in Montreal, and have ofcourse always seen this replica of the Notre Dame basilica in Paris. We have friends who got married here and did their daughter's baptism and it is SUCH a stunning church from the inside. They often do stunning decorations outside for Christmas. And I've also been here for a music concert and th sound... More

Unassuming from the outside, the interior can take your breath away. The color, the details are exquisite. Been to much bigger cathedrals, like Notre Dame in Paris and St Peter's in Rome, but the color and details are something you will always remember

Went there on a very cold day so its very warm heating was really nice haha. Ran into a short organ concert so it was quite worth the $5. If you like photography, the short trip will be rewarding since the place is very photogenic and full of picture worthy details! Some people may otherwise find it a bit boring.

This Church is so beautiful and the architecture is amazing. It is a must see. I have been twice before and still love visiting. The intricate interior is spectacular to see. A guided tour is worth while to get the history on the church. The alter of the Basilica will take your breath away. A must see!

The Notre-Dame is an impressive looking Basilica with its gothic architecture. When you step inside, you are welcomed by amazing artwork and beautiful wood carvings. It was lovely wandering around and investigating the inside areas. The entrance fee is CAD$6 which also entitles you to a tour.

This is a very beautiful church. It almost doesn't look real when you see the beautiful blue colors behind the altar.

It's an wonder inside if you go by the history of it. The guide is just st so informative to let you know the history of the Basilica n Montreal. By the way they accept only cash for the entry tickets. See it to believe it.

The exterior of the building is lovely, but the interior is spectacular. The intricate details within the interior seem to never end--words won't do it justice---one just needs to go and spend some time within the beautiful sanctuary and chapels. My favorites would be the lovely altar, the blue ceiling, the beautifully carved pulpit, the stunning stained glass and the... More

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.
