“What a Beautiful Church”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Do not miss this venue. This church is absolutely one of the most beautiful churches we have visited and we have visited many throughout Europe. There is a $5 per person fee to go inside (except for when they are saying Mass), but the price is well worth it - you will not be disappointed.

“Incredible”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

My Mom and I visited the Notre-Dame Basilica on our mother/daughter vacation this year. We didn't take a tour because we didn't want the history behind it. However, we just wanted to enjoy the beauty of this place. We were glad we opted out of the tour. I think this is a must-do when visiting Montreal!

“Stunning!”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

This church is amazing beautiful and intricately designed. Even the chapel area is breathtaking. It costs $5 to tour the inside, but it is a sight that should not be missed.

“Chapel isn't to be missed”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

The free guided tour isn't to be missed. The rear chapel is so unique. It's terrible that it was hit by fire in the past, but I'm glad it was restored.

“Excellent”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

We had 2 half days & 1 full day in Montreal so decided to visit Notre-Dame Basilica in the evening. We reached 20 minutes before the light & sound show. I am glad we decided to do this,
The history of the Basilica was narrated thro the headphones. Then the screens were withdrawn & Basilica was exposed with different colour light reflecting on it. It was breathtaking & at the end, we had 15 minutes to visit & take photographs.
Our visitors & 3of us were very satisfied & content.
This should be on your must to do list.
