This was absolutely amazing! It was only $5 canadian dollars per person and this included a 20 minute guided tour in English or French. The tour was fantastic- super professional and informative. Truly a must see if you are going to be in Montreal!

Wow this site was impressive. We were allowed to skip the line since we were with a group who made prior arrangements, but I would have to say that I wouldn't have minded the wait. It is heavily visited so don't expect to have the place to yourself. In fact people wait years to marry there, and I can see... More

Always light a candle here (if you are entering for religious reasons, no charge for admission). The altar is breathtaking, and definitely worth a visit.

The area around Notre Dame is lovely to walk around and the perfect place for a delicious cake and coffee is Maison Christian Faure at 355 Place Royale near the Old Customs House.

We visited here many years ago – a few times. We were not going to be in Montreal and not go again. Such a masterpiece of craftsmanship. We are not religious folk, but we can appreciate and respect what this place represents. Well worth the visit.

Exciting to see in person the church in which celine dion was married in. Very charming area with many old churches and cobblestone streets to see. Horse and buggy rides around old montreal near this church.

Cash only. It was worth the $5 to see the place. It was beautiful and there was lots of history to learn about the place.

It is beautiful, but we were somewhat offended that this cathedral would charge admission. Notre Dame, Paris, Sacre Coeur, St. Patricks, etc. all ask donations. Historic & lovely plaza outside where people relax & take a break.

This is one of the most beautiful churches I have seen and I have travelled a lot. Take the time to enjoy the majesty of the church and small chapel.

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.
