Gorgeous. A must-see in Montreal! Disliked having to pay for entry, but it was worth it. The surrounding area of Old Montreal is great too.

Unimpressive front entrance - side walls give more character to the structure. The square across from the front entrance seem to be a focal point for tourists and locals alike.

This is not really meant as an "average" review but a warning. We were close by on Friday but got caught up doing other things..so we came back on Sunday. It was closed all day for weddings! Oh well, another reason to go back to Montreal.

When we have visitors coming to Montreal we always bring them to see a few different famous places.One of them is this church When the Pope came to Montreal this is one of the churches he came to. Celene Dion was married in this church as well . I went to a wedding in a small Chapel years ago which is on the side .Love the church and the beauty. For me this church tops one of the best in Montreal , The beauty of colors in the paintings. I have not seen the light show yet but apparently they are beautiful. I love the Wedding Chapel a small intimate chapel and visitors as well can pass and see the bride. Visitors to Montreal please do visit our beautiful churches they are worth the trip .
