Worth stopping in. No fee to see this pretty little chapel. The architecture and interior are beautiful. While walking around the area, it is definitely worth stopping in to see the Chapel, even if you do not choose to pay for the tour.

I can't say enough positive things about this Basilica. The altar is absolutely amazing. The whole space is stunning, even if you are not particularly religious. The entrance fee is $5 a person. There was a bit of a line when we went mid morning, but it moves very fast. We took the tour and the guide was incredible knowledgable... More

The church has fabulous stained glass and lovely wooden ships holding lights symbolizing thanks from the sailor's and their families for a safe journey across the ocean. They have guided tours and a museum as well.

This was a nice church known as the sailors church. There were little boats with candles in them hanging from the ceiling which did not mesh with the crystal chandelliers. After the Notre Dame Bascillica just was not impressed. Be advised we did not do the museum tour only the church.

I visited this church around noon time on Sunday. This is located around east end of the St.Paul Street, and the church as well as its surroundings were calm even on the St.Paul Street which is one of the busiest street in old town. After entering the church, the font was beautiful and there were a few large and beautiful... More

Beautiful place full of history of original settlers in area. Nice escape from the insanity of the tourist area by port. Chapel is gorgeous and guided tour of the crypt was fascinating - showed archaeological site beneath current chapel. Guided audio tour was worth it and you got a cheaper rate for museum with it. If you like history, this... More

The quaint ship lights hanging from the ceiling remind you this was a sailor's chapel. No charge to get in but leaving a donation is nice. Beautiful stained glass windows, helpful docents - a nice place for a short visit.

An incredible testimony to the faith of people past and present, enough stated. THIS IS SOMETHING THAT YOU ALOW YOURSELF TO EXPERIENCE ON EVERY VISIT TO MONTREAL, IT IS A CONNECTION, EVERY BIT AS IMPORTANT AS a visit to the other historic monuments. It is a celebration of the dream,s and hope of those who traveled before.

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.
