Many old Cathedrals and churches have beautiful and impressive architecture but are not as spectacular on the inside. Notre-Dame, on the contrary, is breath-taking once you step through its doors.

In the European tradition of incredible and intricate beauty, the Notre-dame Basilica is a wonderful and enriching place to visit, and then return for a Service. We attend the Jazz Festival every year and this beautiful place is on our agenda every visit, including the Gift Shop to the right of the main entrance.

There has been a church on this site since at least 1642. The church and surrounding area are both steeped in historical significance. If you are there on a Sunday, I recommend walking in and listening to the service for a while (even if you are not of the Christian faith). The choir, organ and the acoustics of the church are incredible.

A beautiful building, well taken care of, this is one of THE most important landmarks to visit in Montreal.

A well maintained historic building, accommodating tourists but still maintaining its dignity as a house of worship.

This church is absolutely beautiful! We attended Sunday night mass at 5pm. We don't speak French, but still enjoyed the mass & tried to take in all of the architecture. An absolute MUST SEE while in Montreal!
