This outside of this church is very simmilar to Notre Dame Basilica in Montreal. So, the interior was more interesting for me instead of the view of the outside building. My overall score is 65 out of 100.
Such a beautiful church. Attended it when there was a mass going on.
It was designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1990.
The site was originally home to the small wooden St. Jacques Church built in 1832.
This structure was destroyed in 1841...More

Montreal visit questions (1 Replies)
I will be visiting in August with my family. When I was in Montreal many years ago, I remember that the area around the stutue of Nelson was full of street performers and artists. Are they still there? And are they only there on weekemds, or weekday nights, too? I am thinking of going to the show at Notre Dame basilica, "et la lumiere fut". Does anybody know if it is all in French, and does it matter? Is it worth seeing? Thank you

Hi Firefly_Nelie, Well things in Canada tend to be very casual, so pack those jeans for sure! As for the weather, although our 24C / 75F will be a lot cooler by temperature on the thermometer perhaps than what you are used to... it will the humidity that will get to you... the higher the temp, the more the humidity generally. This is especially so in our big cities where there is an abudance of concrete & pavement! The humidity will literally build to 100% until it finally rains......More
Most Christmassy Hotel/Area to stay in Montreal? (4 Replies)
Hello! I am travelling to Montreal with my father and sister for Christmas 2015 and we are looking for a Christmassy hotel with lots of atmosphere. We usually go for boutique hotels with character rather than business-style hotels. We have been looking in the Old Montreal area near Notre Dame Basilica but are open to other areas too. Ideally we would find a hotel that could accommodate us in a suite/large room, ideally with a fireplace. Budget about 300/350CAD a night.

Just to give an idea of where we are looking; we are currently considering the Nelligan, Saint Sulpice and Hotel Place d'Armes at the moment, but we are wondering if there might be even better options that we haven't already come across? Or if anyone has an opinion as to which of those hotels seem like the best option?
