The Basilica is big and beautiful and very peaceful. The Aura show was available when we were there but it was in between show times. The previews look interesting.

The "Aura" experience was absolutely awe inspiring. The light show and music were both beautiful and touching. The Basilica is overwhelmingly beautiful in design with a decor that is so very captivating that makes you just want to see everything. This is a sight to...More

Magnificent cathedral in the heart of Old Montreal. Designed after the original in Paris. I find it particularly beautiful in the evening from the small park opposite the main entrance.

Small cover to enter and worth that and more. One of the most beautiful cathedrals I've ever seen. The stained glass, woodworking, alters, organ, archecture and inspirational ambiance was amazing. Number one attraction here, hands down.

This is in the heart of the city, and well worth the visit. There are often lines, especially in tourist season/nicer weather. But you can visit this and so much more in the near-by area. Well worth it!

This is a most beautiful, historical place of worship. The altar is awesome and the stained glass is magnificent. Glorious!

The basilica itself is interesting although not the most spectacular I’ve seen. However during June and perhaps longer there is a son et lumiere event twice each evening. This is what gained the excellent rating. It’s not long but well worth the entrance fee. Cathedral...More

Absolutely gorgeous. A little strange to pay to see a church (they make a fortune from the thousands of tourists and I hope that they do good with the money), but it is worth seeing. Spend 15 minutes, check it out and take some pictures....More

If you go inside with an image of Notre Dame de Paris in mind, you'll be totally surprised... The lightning and the altar are so beautiful, it is a must go in Montreal!!

They seem to run tours regularly throughout the day. We arrived around 8:40 am and they said the tour will begin at 9am (which it did). There was also another tour that started around 9:20am. I didn’t see a posted schedule... More
