If you haven't spent time in the Cathedral. It's a "must-visit." Go with a quiet heart and mind and let the glory sink in. You will love it.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

I'm not a big church enthusiast, but it's definitely worth checking out. Great photo opportunities and a quiet, peaceful setting.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012

If you like old, Catholic architecture, you must stop here. Built as a replica of Notre dame de Paris, the structure if lovely. We were fortunate to be there while the choir practiced. Entrance fee was $5 per person.

“Beautiful Church!”

This church is one of the nicest that we had ever seen. We took the tour and the guy that gives the English tour was excellent! I would call this a must see for anyone going to Montreal!
