“You must see this place”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

The interior of the building must be seen. It would be difficult to describe. Picture-taking is allowed and you will definitely want to take pictures. Be sure your camera is fully charged with a flash.

“Exotic and Different”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Extraordinary church, unlike any I have seen. I have no idea of the architectural and decorative influences. Has to be seen. Unique.

“See the light show”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

This was near our hotel. They run two light shows on some nights. The end of the show is spectacular as the whole of the Basilica eventually lights up. Stunning.

“Lots of Notre Dame Churches.. this is the best in Canada”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

When you go to CAnada you will be amazed by the amount of Notre Dame Cathedrals you can see on each town (Montreal, Quebec City, Otawa, etc)
But this is the most beautiful one.. YOu need to pay 5 CAD for the entrance but it is worth it. They have tour guides in English and in French
