Not as famous as Notre Dame in Montreal, Mary Queen of the World is still beautiful. I have been to many cathedrals in England and this easily holds its own for majesty but also for a sense of peace. The paintings of the Jesuits (who have had a bad rap in recent years) teaching in Montreal are unique.

Have visited many times as I live and work in Montreal. Not a fan of Baroque architecture, but if you are, you should visit. Best time to go is when there is a full scale - open to the public celebration: you will be able to appreciate the acoustics and the amazing choir.

I was super interested in this space since it is supposed to be a replica of St. Peter's in Rome. It is huge and beautiful from outside. The inside is not particularly ornate, but very pretty. It was vast inside. My kids were amazed at how big it was and how many side chapels there were. The atmosphere was quiet,... More

The architecture is stunning and the statues on the top are an amazing example of sculpture. The stone- work and columns are beautiful.

As soon as you see it, you are astonished. The inside is beautiful and huge. The are concerts every day at many times. My only regret is that mass is only held in French.

Along the main road of Rue Renee Levesque - the outside is majestic & the inside is stunning and tranquil.

Not quite Notre Dame in the old city but still an impressive structure. A place of quiet contemplation. Has a massive interior that is less ornate than many other cathedrals in North America. Worth a visit.

Stunning artwork and sculptures. We were lucky enough to be able to catch the 5 pm mass there before continuing our exploration of Montreal.

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.
