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.

“Beautiful Chapel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

Amazing chapel with large bronze alter. Notre Dame is a beautiful church and the smaller chapel is worth the visit.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

One of the most beautiful cathedrals I have visited. It is a must see in Montreal. The contrast with the more modern chapel should not be missed.

Despite all the beautiful photos, you really have to visit this place to truly enjoy the splendor and history encompassed within the cathedral. A must see when visiting Montreal.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

The chapel is something to see. The architecture is stunning, when you realize how old it all is. Everything so intricately carved and colored.

“Fantastic church to visit - a must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

While Notre-dame gets the lions share of attention this is by far my favorite church to visit. The bell tower view is great and a wonderful photo-op. The church itself is beautiful and there is an architectural dig being completed in the basement area which you can view. A must see.
