It's such a beautiful attraction. Definitely worth making time for. The art work is incredible and just the feeling when you're inside makes you want to explore and walk around. It's great for the whole family.

A beautiful cathedral in the heart of Old Montreal, which visitors can view for a fee of $6 Canadian. This is where Celine Dion was married, and Pierre Trudeau’s funeral mass was held. Lovely!

I'm not sure why but I was stunned at how beautiful the church was when I walked in. There is a fee to enter, but it's worth it if it means the church will be kept up as it is. Each way you look is gorgeous, whether it is the alter, the organ, etc. I tried to take some photos... More

The other tourists milling about aside, Every inch of the Basilica was covered in something to look at and admire. It was brightly colored but classical and very interesting from a theological standpoint as it does not just play host to the iconic saints and religious figures we are used to seeing but involving a little bit of research for...

We came to the Take a Seat at the Organ performance after xmas. We'd never been to Notre-Dame Basilica, so it was our first for everything. The church itself is stunning. Entrance is super cheap and should be a must visit for all touring Montreal. The organ performance was only $5 extra per person, and it was certainly something to... More

This is a MUST see in Old Montreal! It is worth the $5 and the time! It is absolutely breathtaking inside, even if you are not Catholic, it is still worth going!

Captivated by the majestic facade and the cobblestone streets on the square at Notre-Dame, the massive wood doors allure an inquisitive mind to enter attentively and reverently. As you make your way through the entrance, the cool, musty air awakens your senses and takes you back in times past imagining what previous cathedrals, monasteries, churches must have been like before...

this was 2 blocks from the Marriott SpringHill and was breathtaking. Set up for Christmas with the nativity was a must see. We got there when it was free admission but they do charge a small fee on other times.

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighborhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic center of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its center, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theater.
