This is one of the most beautiful churches I've ever seen. It will take your breath away. They accepted US dollars and the fee was nominal.

The interior is magnificent and the reasonable price of admission is well worth the cost. It's as impressive as many in Europe. It's a must see in Montreal.

This church is in the same league for me as Notre Dame in Paris and Sacre Coeur - stunning altar and lead light windows including those in the ceiling. Huge organ at the back. It certainly has a holy feel about it. Worth a visit.

Old Town Montreal has some interesting sites not diluted by trinkets and souveniers. Notre Dame Basilica is one. Begin by standing in the square facing the church. You could take a tour during the day, pay a little more for a multimedia presentation at night and tour after that for free. A beautiful interior similar in style to old European Catholic cathedrals, but with wood rather than stone.

We take a vacation to Montreal yearly and this is a must see every time. Be sure to take in the "and then there was light" program. An excellent production.
