Owner description: Called the Sailors' Church because of the wooden ship models that hang from its ceiling, this church was originally designed by Marguerite Bougeoys, one of Montreal's first teachers. Next to the Chapel, the Marguerite Bourgeoys Museum ($) presents fascinating stories/accounts and significant objects to showcase the life and work of Marguerite Bourgeoys, Montréal's first teacher. Visitors can explore the 18th-century stone crypt and climb the tower to admire a stunning view of the St. Lawrence, Old Montréal and downtown. The archaeological site, opened in 1998, has witnessed more than 2,400 years of history. In addition to its permanent exhibition spaces, the Museum offers a variety of temporary exhibitions and cultural activities, along with school programs.

This small church is a testament to the link between Montreal and the St-Lawrence river. Look especially for the boat-shaped chandeliers.

I was with a small group and we all took the opportunity to visit the Chapel. I had been many years earlier and looked forward to visiting again. A lovely, serene, space to center yourself. The beauty of the chapel is awesome. Nice place to take a few minutes out of the day for yourself.

While the church is beautiful, it can be hard to get into due to special events. In the last four visits, we were able to get into the church only once. It has been very upsetting. The best bet is to check with your concierge or call the church early in the day to find out when it will be open to the public.

The Church itsself was beautiful but everywhere you went there were fees to see what we thought should have been free and there was not much to see. I guess we are just use to the United States and this is where we will stay for vacations.
