A quiet oasis in downtown Montreal

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.

This is an island of peace and quiet in the center of downtown Montreal. It is 1/4 the size of St. Peter's.

Dislikes: Not enough darn parking and what there is is expensive when you can get it. Conversely, the rooftop sculptures are interesting. How many Saints are there in Quebec, anyhow? Is it up to a million yet? It is a popular cathedral so lunchtime crowds are common. Try visit in off-hours if you want to feel the peace and grace... More

This cathedral is beautiful, welcoming, clean and friendly. This is a must-stop when I'm in Montreal with the family. Historic building, right in the center of Montreal, this church won't disappoint you when it comes to architecture and history.

This cathedral is beautiful. We happened upon it accidentally. We stopped in to get out of the rain. There was no admission fee. There is a small shop inside. I wish we could have been there for Sunday mass. Definitely worth a visit!

If you are into old churches, this is a must look see. The 19th century church, has been kept in wonderful shape, and the outside statues cap off a great domed roof.

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.
