Owner description: Montreal's oldest Catholic church, built in 1656, is known for its intricately designed interior, which includes stained glass chronicling the history of the city.

Take the "insider's tour", it's worth the few extra bucks! They take you to places within the church which are not easily accessible otherwise, with insider info about the history of the building and the great city that is Montreal! My favourite church/chapel tour in North America, but still a ways behind some of the European ones! Really open photography policy--snap away!

The Basilica is exceptional. I recommend the tour and hear all the history. It is offered in both English and French. I would love to attend Mass on a Sunday just to hear the 7000 pipes in the organ.

My mom and I went to the basilica this summer and someone recommended the evening light show. Waste of time. It was probably the cheesiest thing I've ever seen and at the end you only get 15 minutes to walk around the church. We both wish we'd come earlier in the day during regular visiting hours. It's definitely a site to see and 15 minutes is NOT enough time. At least it didn't cost more.

Paying a small fee to get in was OK. The things in there are all spectacular! Listening to the tour guides explaining about the history and features of the basilica will allow you to better appreciate this magnificent cathedral.

I was in awe of this wonderful place. The architect was breath-taking. It was the highlight of my tour. It is a must see if you are in Montreal. Just incredible and amazing.
