Can't tell from Réné Lévesque Blvd, but this is a beautiful and history filled basilica. Worth a visit especially on a Sunday morning.

I attended mass here and it was so special. Between the stained glass, the wooden benches, and amazing alter you will get swept away. It's truly breath taking.

I was a little confused about the entrance there cause it was snowing but it was pretty easy to figure out it was kind of a no vehicle entrance. The architecture and the whole interior of the basilica is so beautiful you can't get enough of it. Make sure you grab the green leaflet inside, there is information in there... More

A beautiful church with interesting history. Well worth popping in for a look if you have 20 minutes to spare.

Me and my friend stumbled upon this church while in downtown Montreal. A very pretty church, and, a must see for those of us who enjoy church hoping. Has beautiful stain glass and very nice statues.

Visited here while heading over to Briskets (restaurant) and found this historic church and stained glass windows well worth looking over.

Very beautiful. Liked a little more than Notre Dame Basilica. Though I'm not Catholic, I stayed for noon mass. It was in English.
