“Beautiful but why Here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

This is a Catholic Cathedral and seat of the Bishop of Montreal.

What sets this cathedral apart from others is that it is reportedly a 1/3 replica of St Peters in Rome. I have been lucky enough to see the real thing at this one in Montreal is an excellent corny right down to the Bernini copy of Bernini's altar canopy.

Even is a copy it is still a peaceful, tranquil and beautiful church to visit

“Are we in Rome?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

A small-scale version of St. Peter's in Rome, this lovely cathedral has beautiful artwork and, to my mind, a more reverent atmosphere than Notre Dame. Beautiful!

“st peter s in Montreal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Shaped like St Peter s , the Vatican. It remains a functioning church with daily masses. Note the statues on top of Cathedral , the first Archbishops of Montreal.
Pope John Paul II stayed in the Cathedral on his visit in the early 1980 .
