There was a big line up to get in and a price so we just stayed and viewed it from outside. It was a beautiful building. In a great neighbourhood, Old Montreal which is worth walking through.

I think this is the oldest Chapel in North America and it's something to see. It will take your breath away.

Always a shock to pay to visit a house of worship, but it if helps the exploration of artifacts around this church and the preservation of this lovely building, then it's less offensive. Definitely recommend a tour to point out all the features an uneducated eye might miss. What a treasure!

Marguerite Bougoise welcomes sailors to the port from her perch atop this church where you have a spectacular view of Montreal, climbing up to the peak. Under the church, recent excavations have found artifacts and ancient church structures beneath, some dating 2000 years. Well worth the nominal fee and the church itself is rather pretty too, with ships suspended from... More

Loved this little chapel, great wood carved sculptures. They have a little museum and washroom facilities. There is no entrance fee. There is a little shop where you can buy souvenirs.
