The Notre-Dame Basilica is a beautiful, large cathedral in Old Montreal; can totally understand why Celine Dion got married here!

Spectacular architecture. You cannot walk by this church and not visit regardless of your religious affiliation.

Very nice old building. I just refuse to pay to go inside a church, no way. The store outside was priced accordingly but very small and people have to squeeze in.

We visited the cathedral during our recent visit to Montreal, and enjoyed both our tour and the basilica itself. Entry during the day was $5, but at 10:00 and 10:30, there were tours in both English and French. We happened to be there at 10:00, so we got a tour out of our admission fee. Our docent was energetic and... More

Definitely a must-see especially for Roman catholics. I was able to hear service in French which was a great spiritual experience. I wernt on a Sunday at 11:30 am. You get to look around for free as well. After this, I believe there is a 5$ admission fee to get in. It is kind of humid and warm inside though,... More

I had been to Montreal several years ago, and I don't remember if they had the light show option when I was first there. When we went this time, we were excited about the concept of the light show - it sounded so neat! I don't really know why people are raving about it. As another reviewer said, the light... More

Very scenic, well preserved piece of history in Montreal. Notre Dame Basilica is one of the prettiest cathedrals I've ever seen. Worth a picture if you're not religious like myself, and worth a mass if you are.

To go into the church they charge around $6 I believe, but when I tried to go in, they were close due to a wedding. I couldn't get mad, Imagine how beautiful must be to get married there. They advised me to purchase a $10 ticket for the light and sound show happening that night at 7 pm, or 8... More
