In our travels, we have been to lots of churches in America and Europe, but this one is special. Extremely majestic and tours are simple but informative.

The church itself is very small (Chapelle!). Loved the ships in the sanctuary. The museum and trip to the top of the is worth it. Great views of the river. Interesting history.

Right, the chapel's real name is Notre-Dame de Bonsecours—Our Lady of Good Help—but this is the place Leonard Cohen wrote about in his song SUZANNE: "And the sun pours down like honey on our Lady of the Harbor..." And if you *are* there on a sunny day, the view from the top is absolutely outstanding. But everything about this place... More

Words simply cannot capture the beauty contained in Notre Dame. A small fee for admission, but completely worth it. Please remember to consider mass times and weddings when planning visits as you will not want to miss it.

The church is not far from the Marche Bonsecours and worth taking the time to visit. It is not as grand as the Basilique Notre Dame down the road, but is beautiful nonetheless. The church pays homage to the seafarers of old with the boat lighting throughout the church. It has a long and interesting history.

The basilica is very nice and one can spend a few hours there admiring the paintings and the history but thats it.
