Beautiful architecture, nice little shop inside. On top of the church there are patron saints of 13 parishes of Montreal who donated them. Mass available every day.

I saw an angel! Just kidding! This is a beautiful cathedral that is a replice of St-Peters basilica in Rome! I was talking about an angel, but actually you can even find God in there, in the Tabernacle. Enjoy your visit!

This is a grand and beautiful cathedral located in the heart of downtown Montreal and a must see for any tourist visiting Montreal. In my opinion, even more beautiful than the Notre Dame Cathedral in Old Montreal. This place also has a special place in my heart, as I was married there and both my sons were Baptized there as...

Pretty church on St. Catherine's in the Financial district. No admission charge. Easy walk from three of the better hotels for Sunday mass. Not as beautiful as Notre Dame but it has it's charms

An impressive golden cathedral, with great statues and paintings, and the beautiful altar. This is not the biggest cathedral in town, but desirves an hour of your day to be appreciated.

Though I am rudimentary at best in French, I still enjoyed Mass at this truly beautiful church. The marble altar and beautiful statues were amazing.

Architecture is great, paints on the wall. Wow! The high ceiling, apparently this place is like Basilic St. Peter in Roma, but at a lower scale. A place to see if you visit Montreal.

Mary, Queen of the World Cathedral (Cathédrale Marie-Reine-du-Monde), is a minor basilica in Montreal, and the seat of the Roman Catholic archdiocese of Montreal. When we visited this house of worship not many people were in it and we took our time strolling around the building admiring the architecture and the art. Photography is permitted.
