Beautiful church. Too bad they charge you a $5.00 fee to get in. The day we visited there was at list a 1000 tourists inside at the same time. I was shocked to see people keeping their hats on while inside. You don't have to be a catholic to pay the respect that is due to a religious sanctuary. When... More

I could have only seen this and been pleased with my trip to Montreal. Take the 20 minute tour/highlight. The lines are long, but they move fast. Once inside you can take all the photos you want prior to the tour. Beautiful!

This church was absolutely beautiful! You don't have to be Catholic to enjoy the artistry and breathe taking views. Every intricate detail is finely crafted. You can either walk with the tour guides or admire on your own. Either way you will take lots of pics. There's even a gift shop where you can purchase souvenirs. There will be lines... More

This is a great stop on your tour the outdoor garden is nice the organ plays in the day and the stained glass was interesting as it was very thick. There are a variety of artworks that depict apostles or biblical themes, in several different media. The placement of the church is interesting and the city views are excellent.

The Basilica was breath taking. Would definitely recommend allowing a couple of hours to take the tour was well as spend some time at each section of the church. There is SO much to take in, so take your time.

Not quite as grandeur as Notre Dame cathedral in Paris but a must see if in Montreal. Gorgeous historical monument in Old Montreal.

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.
