“A visit to Notre Dame Basilica”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Very nice church with a lot of intricate details in wood and gold leaf I think. Not as good as St. Annes but very very nice!

“Liked it better than Montreal's”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Beautiful church and really enjoyed even more than the Notre Dame in Montreal. This church was smaller but felt more intimate with outstanding architecture. They just don’t build churches like that anymore!

“Worth Visiting”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

The Notre Dame Basilica, which dates back to the mid-1800s, is a beautiful house of worship worth visiting. Photographs are allowed; unfortunately, the lighting is such, at least during my visit, that the quality of some of the photographs I took were less than satisfactory. In addition to the beautiful interior, there are several monuments on the exterior worth seeing. Persons interested in church architecture and art would enjoy visiting this church.

“Lovely church”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Very ornate inside, but the decor was not such that it overwhelmed us (unlike some decorated churches in Bavaria in Germany). It was beautiful in a more understated way. The outside was interesting with the towers painted with aluminised paint to give them a metallic shiny look.

“Beautiful interior”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Cannot get inside without paying $10 - whether or not you want the "tour" (actually a talk as you sit in the pews). Worth it, however, as interior is just beautiful. Guide's talk was informative and interesting. We did not get to see the Chapel as a service was going on.
