Next to Dominion Square, this church sat next to the Cemetery that is now Place du Canada. During the Cholera epidemic, some people were barried in mass graves and covered with Lime. One poor fellow is said to have woken up and he stumbled his way to Ste Catherine in his lime-covered frock.

The Cathedral really struck a chord with me. It is an airy and emotional place to visit if you appreciate beautiful architecture and classic religious styling.

One can get lost in this church, it is big. It is a mini of the Vatican in Rome. The beauty of this church is amazing.

It is light, bright, airy, and a delight for the shutterbug! Tours are self-guided and it is the most beautiful church in the City. We went to Mass there, and even though I don't speak French, it had such a positive, warm feeling there (which surprised me, given its enormity). Really, it's a must see!

A miniature St. Peter's Basilica that is magnificent! I have been here many times and attend Mass even though I don't speak French. I always marvel at the architecture, and I cannot even imagine the work that went into building this place many years ago. Usually outshadowed by Notre Dame and St. Joseph's Oratory as a tourist stop you may... More

What a gorgeous cathedral! We attended a Sunday morning mass and although we are English speaking, it was so beautiful to participate in the French version.

Spent an unhurried hour here just after lunch. Inviting, inspiring, and calming place. Stayed longer than I expected and left feeling centered. No charge.

Not too far off from downtown Montreal, a fairly good replica of St Peters in Rome, and it's free! No it's not an identical replica, you wont see any tombs, but still, you should see it!

Designed after St. Peter's in Rome and is beautiful inside and out! You can visit on your own - in fact, I'm not even sure tours are offered, but you can definitely walk through and admire the architecture. There's no admission cost either - though donations are welcome and you can, of course, light a candle for $1 - a... More

This was the first place we stumbled across so went in - my husband has seen St Peter's and could not get over how accurate it was, being a 1/4 replica. So beautiful. Definitely worth a visit.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
