i'd rate this a little higher than the main Notre-Dame basilica as more areas of the church were open. We were able to tour the church then climb up to the roof for some great looks at the port and of the neighbourhood. Then the path led down to the crypt which was interesting. It is certainly not the most... More

Intimate chapel within the huge basilica of Notre Dame. A special place for reflection and just admiring the workmanship of the chapel.

This is an absolutely wonderful church and museum. The exterior of the church is gorgeous and the inside is very beautiful as well. You can also tour the museum part, which was neat (though the doll area can definitely be skipped) for a small fee. The best part is definitely climbing to the top of the chapel and viewing the...

Lovely historic church deep in the heart of Old Montreal. Fascinating ex voto lamps modelled on ships blessed at the chapel.

This is an excellent attraction to visit. The church is the oldest in Montreal. The interior of the church is beautiful and shows the early French influence. The museum is worth the tour. There is a reasonable entry fee that is worth it. You start with 3 rooms covering the life of Saint Margurite Bougeois. In one room there are... More

For a nominal fee you can visit and photograph this beautiful cathedral that holds its own with any of the great churches of Europe.

Wow! We planned on stopping by for a few minutes and spent an hour, and if weren't in a rush, would have been a lot longer. Will visit again and join the tour (included in the price). Don't miss this.

Made more famous by the film Hunchback of Notre - Dame, was very crowded when we reached there. It is simply beautiful. A great example of French Gothic Architecture. Service was going on when we entered. The church has a marvellous collection antiquities. The two things interested me were the scuptures and the stained glasses. Among the statues , the... More
