This is a great, quick stop. It is beautiful and easy to access--no real crowds or long lines. Inexpensive as well.

It's a really beautiful cathedral, from the outside and above all from the inside, if you go to montreal you cannot not make a stop there. It's full of color. The price is acceptable ($5), even if I believe that entrance in churches should be for free. It's nice also at night because it lights up. Also, it's a nice... More

A must see if you visit Montreal...the architecture, the artistry in every corner of the basilica. Very good tours, very informative, and you can choose English, French, Spanish among other languages for your guide.

Might not be the thousand year old basilicas of Europe (I miss Spain) but if you're in North America, Montreal IS the place for this. Notre-Dame Basilica has a special charm, different from the grandeur of St. Joseph's Oratory (which is also definitely worth seeing)

A must see if you are in Montreal! WOW!! Stunning & Colorful. The $5.00 admission is worth it and you get to do a tour with a guide or slowly stroll about on your own. Intricate detail in every piece and the stain glass windows(WOW). It give one such a calm feeling.

This is one of those touristy spots you need to visit when in Montreal. It is worthwhile to see the architecture and learn of its history. We took the 30 minute guided tour, where you learn some good information. As it is in old Montreal, restaurants and bars are not far off.

The Notre-Dame Basilica is in old town. There is a $5 entrance fee for adults; $3 for youth and kids under 6 enter free. If you are lucky, you can catch one of the 20-min tours given by one of the staff members. Check the board in the entrance of the church for the next tour (Eng and French). There... More

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.
