Although there was an admission charge, the interior was stunning. There were guided tours conducted in either e|nglish or french but we preferred to wander at our leisure.

Wonderful church full of so much detail. Worth the $5.00 admission. The stained glass windows are especially beautiful with some depicting scenes of early settlers to the area.

Paying $ to get into a church seems a lot to me. Went 9 years ago for free. Beautiful church though.

This is in the center of old town and the square in front is a lovely place to rest and people watch. The church itself is interesting but not a must-see.

For me the highlight of this impressive church was the organ, the pipes of which seemingly running the width of the church in the choir loft. Although a man was seated at the organ huddled with a woman (it was impossible to discern what they were doing), the organ was never fired up, which was a disappointment. The center aisle... More

Sit and quietly enjoy the views inside the Notre-Dame Basilica as you need time to take in all the details. Built in the style of European churches and nearing 200 years old, the soaring Gothic ceiling and impressive artwork is impressive. Do not miss the modern Sacre-Couer Chapel that is also part of Notre-Dame; the massive bronze altar piece and... More

19th century neo-gothic., prettified. The structure, aside from the Altar, has little to commend it and is not worth a charge.

The Church is really beautiful from both its exteriors and interiors as well. The inside of the chapel is filled with lots of impressive artworks ranging from stained glass to wood works to carvings and statues. While there it would be nice to take the free tour which will help you learn and explore more of this oldest Catholic Church.... More

For the entry fee of $5, you can get a 20 to 25 minute guided tour at the Basilica. We have often visited the Basilica in the past but never with a guide. Martin, a very knowledgeable and verbose young man packed a lot of information in his presentation. He also took us to visit the smaller chapel which is... More
