One of Montreal's beautiful sites. Very elegant. The building alone is awesome to look at on the outside, and the ambiance when you go inside. Special place to see.

It was better when you could just stroll in for free. Now they charge you to have a look. But it is a truly stunning representation of the cathedral in Paris of the same name. And it holds its own for special concerts and events. This can be a starting point for a longer visit to Old Montreal.

Impressed with this magnificent edifice. It is amazing to think about how this was built so many years ago. The stain glass windows are beautiful.

This church was the largest in North America until St Patrick's in NYC was built. This is a must see. You do pay to enter but then get a personal tour with English speaking guide so well worth ot!

Magnificent stop.

The Basilica is awe inspiring. The color of the votives and the lights behind the alter with the light streaming in through the stained glass windows is a sight I will never forget.

Look for the statue of St. Joan of Arc. St. Joan is holding a flag which symbolizes the churches appointment as a Basilica.

Remember, despite it beauty and touristy destination, it is a reverent house of worship. Be thoughtful as you walk through and thoughtful as you take pictures.
