A must see for visitors; the dark wood carvings, statues, paintings, and stained glass windows are just amazing to see.

Very busy for Easter. An amazingly beautiful church you should visit when in Montreal- the smaller room behind the alter is equally beautiful. We did not get a chance to attend- but others mentioned a night time light show that sounded good.

A must see in Montreal. Take your time and sit down to fully take in the surroundings. During the mass on Sunday , it is closed.

I'm not joking. Spend the $25 and prepare to have you mind blown. Day tours to the Basicila are beautiful and reverent. But at night this place transforms in to one of the most beautiful displays of environmental projection I have ever seen. They excellently...More
