Beautiful place which is free of charge and open to public visits all day long. In some ways similar to the italian churches and a little bit like St.Pauls church in London, not so fancy but with it's own beauty.

This is a wonderful building and a great place to escape the chaos of the city. While perhaps not as well-known to tourists as the basilicas in Old Montreal, this historical church is well worth a short visit if time permits.

A friend visiting from out of town has the same name... Marie Reine. It was my first time visiting. I am not Catholic or religious but it is a truly stunning building, as ornate as many special churches in Europe.

So we are a family just walking around Montreal, we see a couple different tourtist go in this back door so we decide to follow them. We literally accidentally walked into the back door of this beatiful cathedral. There was no fee for us to walk around and look at all the amazing craftmenship. Definitely worth the stop

This will sound churlish perhaps but if you have been to Notre Dame or St Pauls or any of the other world renowned cathedrals then you will not be impressed, but it is a large nicely appointed cathedral and if you are in Montreal you should stop by.

Truly inspiring building. The interior is larger than what it appears from the outside. The ceiling is magnificent.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
