Brilliant, amazing, should be at the top of your list when visiting Old Montreal. Make sure to visit the chapel at the back!

“One of the Most Beautiful Churches I Have Seen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

If you are going to Montreal, One of the MUST SEE places is definitely going inside Montreal's Notre Dam Basilica. There is a small fee (if you are not attending mass) that you have to pay to enter and take photos but its worth it. Whenever we go to Montreal we always pass by this church.

“amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

This is one of the most beautiful pieces of architecture. The colours are absolutely stunning. This is a must see. I believe the night light show is also exceptional but unfortunately we didn't see it.

“Stunning colours”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

I don't usually enjoy wandering around churches, but it was raining and I wanted shelter. Glad I popped in. The colours are stunning. It's well worth the $5 to wander around.

“Beautiful cathedral”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

This is probably the most interesting and beautiful thing to see in the Old Town area of Montreal. The cathedral is beautiful inside, and is very typical of a gothic style cathedral that you'd see in places like Paris. There is a $5/CAD admission charge to enter.
