This is a medium sized 19th century Gothic Revival cathedral built by the Irish community in Montreal in the 1840s. The plaque outside states it combines the simplicity of traditional Quebec architecture with medieval French Gothic design. Its stained glass windows are also of good...More

Built for the irish community. In my opinion, ranks up there as one of the most beautiful churches in the country. Smack in the middle of the business district, it is a place of peace and tranquility. Take time to examine the architecture outside.

Stop by here to take in the mosaics and architecture. We visited during a midday mass, so we were unable to really explore. Both the interior and exterior need to be appreciated.

Very large basilica with an excellent brochure, in multiple languages describing some of the key features (pulpit, sculptures and reliefs in the front, etc.) There are also free guided tours. Admission is $8 per adult though.

Like being in Ireland, the inside is wood and gorgeous. Stopped in for Mass after a visit... and no cover charge to enter. So my donation ended being a lot more than the $5 the other church charges to enter a Holy site. The outside...More

Although very unassuming on the outside, definitely worth going inside for. We were the only ones in there. I thought it was nicer than Notre Dame Basilica.

Pictures do not do this church justice. Go and visit, I would suggest about an hour if you are just going to look. We did not stay for mass.
