This was a must-do on our trip. When we showed up at 10:30 on Saturday morning we were told they were closed for the day for weddings. If you can, try to check their schedule ahead of time so you don't miss out like we did.

This building is beautiful and well worth the $5 entry cost. Go on the guided free tour which provides you with really interesting information about the history of the building. Out of the many churches we visited in Canada, this would be the most beautiful.

We did the free tour which was quite informative. It was short enough that you don't get bored and long enough that you actually walk away having learned something. This is a beautiful location and I could see why many people (including Celine Dion) would want to be married here!

A place not to miss visiting if you are in Montreal, it looks grand froside but once you step inside your breath is taken away with the sheer beauty. The entrance fee was only $5 and you got to see the chapel also. Would definitely visit again if I was in town

Beautiful, I was in awe of everything, just to think how old this square and building is, is something. We didn't get to go inside because there was a wedding going on, but maybe next time, and there will be a next time
