Only saw the outside due to the time but a beautiful building nevertheless. Next time I'm in the area will check out the inside too.

People often rush to see the beautiful Notre-Dame Basilica in the old Montreal and bypass this large Cathedral. It's architecture is very interesting since it is similar to Rome's St-Peter at a 1/3 scale. The inside is more modest than Notre-Dame when it comes to colours and golds but i has more to offer. Fort those who seek Sainte-Therese of... More

The Cathedral is a scale replica of St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City. It is free and very easy to get to is well worth the time to stop. Please stop if you get a chance

This place was spectacular. When visiting (which costs nothing), you step into this great cathedral and it is like visiting a smaller version of St. Peter's Basilica in Rome! I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Montreal!!

Visited this Cathedral it's a piece of art. You enter it and it's so peaceful inside. One of the best piece of architect I have seen. A must visit when in Montreal

This is a beautiful cathedral -- both from the outside with the statues of the apostles...and the inside - beautiful art. It is spiritually moving to attend a mass here - which is in French. Christmas eve is a very special occasion - quite moving.

We toured the church early in the morning so was not too crowded. It is free to get in. The cathedral is a 1/3 of the St. Peter Basilica in Rome so it is a big church. The murals were really beautiful and well worth our time. Had we had more time, we would have loved to attend one of... More

I think that this is a must see if you go to Montreal. It is very well preserved, its gorgeous architecture and the history of the church it self will transport you to the past to see the influence churches had back then.

Simply breathtaking architecture. Really amazing to visit and mass is so beautiful to listen to. There is also a gift shop with really good prices. Only reason i gave it a 4 is hard to find a parking space.

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.
