Across from the Complexe Desjardins, a nice Irish Basilica.

Walk around to look at all the saints pictures that cover the entire surround of the inside of the Basilica.

A lovely building even if you are not religious at all. Easy to find and worth a look if you are in the area.

Amazingly beautiful, have to take the tour which is in English, get a taste of history not only of this church but also of Montreal. After the tour I understood why streets are named after saints in Montreal; great place to take pictures.

One of the most beautiful Basilicas ever seen. Great and Pretty art work every where. If you are near downtown, can go by foot, worth to see it.

Beautiful historic church with lots of Irish symbolism. Sort of hidden and in need of some repair but still worth a quick visit.

Amazing if you try to imagine 150+ years ago when these churches were built. Poor French & Irish as they couldn't forecast how Canadians no longer attend them. Go for the architecture, the stained glass, the carvings etc. Be amazed with the height of St Patrick's---- the choir loft is 75 ft up. When they built this church: no one... More

It is one of the most beautiful basilica I have ever visited. The paintings on the ceiling, the sculptures and interior decoration are the works of attention to details.

Beautiful and quiet. Much less touristy than others. Loved the panels individually honoring the saints.

Another history filled location in a city with a strong European feel. If you like to admire the architecture of church, see this one!

Staying in Quartier International

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier International
Designed to connect and beautify unused space, today the Quartier International is like a transversal piece of modern art. The distinctive design flair is most apparent at its focal point, the Palais des Congres, a convention center and retail space with a multi-colored glass exterior and an equally bold interior motif. Outdoors too, the Quartier is friendly towards public art exhibits along its stylish, plotted city squares, with extra-wide sidewalks meant to encourage long strolls and shaded benches available for absorbing the atmosphere. Fresh air and promenades characterize the area, from the foliage of Victoria Square to the fountain of Place Jean-Paul Riopelle, while the restaurants along Rue Saint-Antonie Ouest and Metro stops modeled in the Parisian style give off European glamour.
