There isn't much to say except check the time it closes before you head down there and pay for expensive parking for nothing! Worth the visit!

As a resident of this area, I have visited Notre-Dame to show friends over the years. There are perhaps a handful of places like this in Canada and Montreal is literally blessed to have Notre Dame and St-Joseph's Oratory.
