Great church built by Brother Andre'. Excellent garden featuring the stations of the cross. The Chapel of St Joseph has collections of crutches which are from cured followers.

“A definite landmark to visit in Montreal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

If you are in Montreal, you should visit this historical building.
The steps leading up may seem very daunting, but there is a free shuttle bus which takes you from the bottom to the top, free of charge. The history of this building is something to remember.

“Touching place to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

We visited this place and were wowed away. Beautiful architecture, great volunteers, tons of history.
This is not a place to have "fun", but a place of meditation, understanding, reverence, respect. Beautiful views from the top. Clean place throughout. This building should be visited even if you're not Catholic.
