Beautiful basilica

Similar in a way to St Patrick's in Ny but in a smaller version. It is absolutely a lovely, church. Masses are in English.

I was unaware of this stunning basilica and came upon it by accident. Mid-19th century. Stunning interior.

Very close to Le Phillips Square, this basilica is a very neat structure to see. Nice garden by the church and very close to eats, drinks and such in the town. Worth a visit to see.

It didn't look impressive from the outside, but inside was another matter. This basilica doesn't have the over-the-top feel of Notre Dame, but it's very pretty. Lots of nice stained glass as well. Best of all, no crowds.

While visiting Montreal, my wife and I attended mass at St. Patrick's cathedral because the service was in English. The Basilica was a 10 minute walk from our hotel. The interior was beautiful and very large. We felt very at home in this house of worship.

Doesn't compare to St. Joseph's Oratory or Notre-Dame de Montreal Basilique but still lovely. Built in 1847.

This Basilica is located on a high point, surrounde by modern buildings. It Looks a bit simple from the outside, but it is sure worth it to climb up the steps and take a look inside. Especially the stained glass windows are wonderful. In frond of the church there are also some old remains of buildings to be found.

This beautiful church is located on one of the stops on the hop on hop off bus tour, across the road from the arts museum. It has a beautiful silver spire - many churches in eastern Canada have silver spires. There was a service in progress while we were there so couldn't explore the area, so we sat and took... More

But it is free and much less crowded. The parkings is limited but can be found on the street. It you like Churches, it is worth a look.

Staying in Quartier International

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier International
Designed to connect and beautify unused space, today the Quartier International is like a transversal piece of modern art. The distinctive design flair is most apparent at its focal point, the Palais des Congres, a convention center and retail space with a multi-colored glass exterior and an equally bold interior motif. Outdoors too, the Quartier is friendly towards public art exhibits along its stylish, plotted city squares, with extra-wide sidewalks meant to encourage long strolls and shaded benches available for absorbing the atmosphere. Fresh air and promenades characterize the area, from the foliage of Victoria Square to the fountain of Place Jean-Paul Riopelle, while the restaurants along Rue Saint-Antonie Ouest and Metro stops modeled in the Parisian style give off European glamour.
