After being destroyed by fire, this relatively modern chapel is well worth seeing. Don't skip it while in the main basilica.

Well worth the stop. This is the oldest church in Montreal with a great view of the St Lawrence. I would make this a stop on my first day in Old Montreal.

Oldest church in Montreal worth a detour. In a beautiful part of the city. The church and area ooze with history.

The work and detail that is put into so many chapels just amazes me. Don't miss this when visiting Montreal.

Ville Marie, the finest in religious architecture in Quebec The chapels, the stained glass windows once seen and never forgotten. Known for the rich and famous weddings and funeral services. Dont miss the light and sound show that brings alive Montreal in all its glory and splendour

It's a pretty little church, nice glass stained windows. It can be visited quickly or you can stay longer and check out the museum. It's also well located, in the heart of old Montreal, right next to the Bonsecour building.

Very impressive exterior but interior is underwhelming with local jewelry, clothing and tourist shops, design museum and a café. Was expect an old style market with fresh produce, delis and bakery

Enjoy the Basilica where Celine Dion got married and Pavarotti sang. Nothing to do with the one in France and Not a Cathedral as it is too small but magnificent carvings and stain glass. Check out the working chapel in the back. If you're lucky maybe an organist will be having his daily practice.

A fine old church in the heart of Old Montreal. It's a great place to come and sit and catch your breath after running around the city.

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighborhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic center of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its center, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theater.
