This is a beautiful church. Costs $5 to get in and it's worth it! Also visited the Notre Dame de Bonsecours and I recommend you visit just this one. I regretted walking in the cold to the bonsecours.

What a special treat to stay within walking distance of Basilica Notre-Dame and go to mass en francais. The organ! The choir! The dedication of the parishioners bless you with heavenly sounds and sights.

You could really spend several hours just looking at the stained glass. Everything in the main sanctuary is ornate and worth examining. And then there is the beautiful wedding chapel, with it's combination of traditional and modern. (Make sure you take the tour or buy the guide to find out why). Very much worth the visit.

This is a huge, beautiful church. Take the tour it helps set the stage with the history. Do not miss the new chapel behind the main alter. This smaller chapel is modern in complete contrast to the main Basilica. Pay the $5 and go in, don't be cheap, it ain't easy to keep these buildings in repair.

The Basillica is in itself breathtaking. The chapel behind the altar was a beautiful wonder with its outstanding depiction of the Last Supper in floor-to-ceiling bronze. Outside for the season one could enjoy a life-size creche. Moving back inside, however, the person taking the money was a bit crabby, and it was very disappointing to find the tour guide not...

Included in a bus tour of the city. Wonderful well preserved older church. Magnificent finish to inside of church. Tough to get a great picture as very dark inside. Chapel is a must see.

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.
