I had the pleasure of visiting this impressive church while in Montreal and I was completely blown away by it. The architecture is first-rate, the history is impressive and structure is simply majestic. The entrance fee was just $5 CAD which I believe is totally worth it. Getting to the Notre-Dame is also quite easy. Simply take the metro to... More

It's a beautiful church! But shamefully, it closes very early and you have to pay an entrance fee of 5 cDollar, which in my opinion is a shame…

We did not take a formal tour, just walked around on our own. The windows and statues are beautiful. Make sure you walk all the way in back to the other chapel. plan to spend about 30-45 minutes overall. The place is not huge. But it is definitely worth checking out.

Gorgeous, old basilica in the middle of Viex Montreal. A bit spendy ($10 US or CAN) to pop in and take a photo, but worth it if you enjoy grand architecture. If you plan your visit out, there are also tours for about the same price that give you additional access to the site.

I live in Montreal and I never took the time to go and visit the Basilica until recently and wow! I should have gone much earlier! The basilica is beautiful, every detail is very impressive and the free tour is really interesting! A must do on your trip to Montreal!!

Well preserved and even prettier than the notre-dame in Paris. Entrance used to be free, but $5 fee now is well deserved to keep the basilica in great shape. A must seen.

Even if you are not religious, this cathedral is something to be appreciated. The architecture and history within the stone walls is astounding. Bring a good camera!

This is an active church so you may not be able to see some rooms while service is in session but it is beautiful!!! I definitely recommend stopping if you are in Montreal.

We stayed on the edge of Old Montreal at the Embassy Suites and passed by almost daily. A visit to the Basilica was on our list and we did the tour, which is a great way to learn the history from guides with a passion for the history. Stop by in the evening to see the lights and the effect... More
