Much larger inside than it appears to be from the outside. A must see for architecture buffs. Very ornate, and a quiet respite from the hustle and bustle outside. The park across the street is also a nice place to visit, and there are food trucks parked there if you are hungry.

It's hard to believe this is a North American Cathedral. Reminiscent of those in Europe. Part of what gives Montreal that old world feel.

Absolutely beautiful church! Reminds me of the churches in Italy! Stayed at he Hotel Queen Elizabeth next door and wondered in one morning. Realized after a few minutes that I was a groomsmen at my cousins wedding there years prior.

It's a good place to go rest your mind in the downtown of Montreal. There are several beautiful things and the altar is very nice.

If you are traveling in Montreal, and wanted to visit a church to pray (if Catholic) or for a look-see, you should not miss this Cathedral. The architecture and design is fantastic and awe-inspiring and for me personally is one of the most beautiful Cathedral I've visited in North America.

We were staying at the Fairmont Hotel, next to this cathedral. From our hotel room window, we could see the roof of this large cathedral, so we decided to visit. It is an impressive place.

Depending on how you measure this is essentially a one quarter or one third replica of the Vatican. Whereas the Notre Dame Cathedral in Old Montreal is all wood inside, this is all stone. It is just as stunning. Look around, and there is a white brochure pointing out 18 areas of interest and explaining the inscriptions all around the... More

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.
