This beautiful cathedral is a scaled down version of St. Peters in Rome. Even the altar itself is a smaller replica of the one in St. Peters. The height of the dome is amazing!

A really good place to visit while in Montreal. This is located in the heart of the city. Near to another famous landmark called the Queen Elizabeth Hotel.

One of the most impressive places I've ever seen. The architecture is just amazing. I don't think I've ever seen a more majestic place in my life. If you are in Montreal, put this on your "Must see" list.

Another place that worth going. When you enter you cannot believe how big and beautiful it is. Do not miss it!

This cathedral is so majestic that offers solemnity and spiritual blessings. Makes your experience more wholesome when attending a mass (be prepared to polish your French). This is open for public Christians and non-Christians alike. This is also the cathedral where Celine Dion was married, just added pride to your travel journals.

Great architecture. Lovely and peaceful church right in the middle of the city. The priests are all very nice and accommodating and willing to speak to all parishoners and visitors

Travelling around montreal is a breeze because of its transportation system (subway). Get the 3 day unlimited pass for CAD$18 for stm subway because one ride is CAD$3. You can walk from Bonaventure station. I've been to Notre Dame Monteal too, & I cant compare Notre with Mari church. Both has its own theme with very different architecture. Pay a... More

This is the Cathedral for the Archdiocese of Montreal and a minor basilica. It is a replica of St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City, but in my humble opinion, not nearly as beautiful and awe-inspiring. Take some time to look at the paintings on the walls, as there are many of the North American Martyrs. A must see while in... More

Beautiful building, much art, a very good representation of traditional Quebec religion. If you aren't Catholic. An interesting visit. If you are, a fine experience.

This is a replica of St-Pierre-de-Rome. although interesting to see the colors are faded, dirty and the whole place requires care. It is nice to go inside if you wish to relax from downtown noise.
