The ship-shaped lighting fixtures were unique. The chapel has an interesting history and nice views.

Visited on Sunday morning and sat through part of the service. The church is beautiful and full of priceless works of art. Of note, the lighting is augmented by small wooden ships suspended from the ceiling with green lights from bow and stern.....first time I had seen something like that.

When you visit Old Montreal do not forget to make a stop at Notre Dame de Bonsecours Chapel. It is located almost at the end of Rue Saint Paul

I stumbled on this small church near the old port, and am so glad I decided to go in! The interior is full of beautiful marble work and painted details. The crystal chandeliers and ship-shaped light fixtures were surprising and charming. I skipped the attached museum because they were getting ready to close, but I really enjoyed my visit to... More

Beautiful church! Wish I had time to go inside but I've seen pictures of it. WOW, outside is a nice area where people go to sit and view the beauty around them. The bells rang out each day.
