We were just in time to join a guided tour to archeological site. The guide provided lots of interesting information. Then we follow the audio guide tour about the museum and a chapel. Got to know a lot about history of Montreal and Sainte-Marguerite life. Very beautiful church with a long history. Very educational tour.

Beautiful church in old Montreal. Oldest church there. Wonderful story. They have tours, which we didn't attend. You can just go in the church and look around and sit in quiet or light a candle. Stunning architecture.

Small but beautiful chapel. That artwork on the ceiling is the first of the kind of I have seen. The stained glass windows have wonderful, clear images. I loved the boat shaped lighting fixtures. Did not go into the museum part. FYI, it is closed Mondays

This church is in the heart of old Montreal and absolutely beautiful - seeing lit up at night is a must. If your lucky you may see a wedding - check the streets for limos of all types we even saw a Bentley limo!

Found a brochure to this lovely chapel in our apartment and decided to visit - very happy we did. My husband, daughter and I toured the chapel, the doll house exhibit, etc. and climbed the tower for a really nice view of Old Montreal, the Old Port and the water. Later, I returned for the archaeological tour (included in the... More

We liked this church better than Notre Dame Basilica -what a shame many skip this one. The "Fishermen's Church" is fantastic. There is so much to see when you pair it with the museum/historical site next door. The tour was extremely good also and NOT crowded.

I like learning about the history of the places I visit and this was very interesting. There were walking tours available in the front of the chapel. Justin was our tour guide, he has a lot of knowledge. It was a fun learning experience.

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.
