“WONDERFUL ARCHITECTURE”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

La basilique Notre-Dame de Montreal is very famous for its architecture and a visit there wil always be appreciated. Basilic is situated on Place d'Armes in Old Montreal and is easy to reach from downtow by bus, by subway or taxi... even by foot if you agree to wlak for about 25 minutes. If you have your own car be you cannot park directly on the Place d'Armes but you can have access to many parkings ($$$) all around. There are a lof restaurants all around where you can eat.

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

Notre-Dame is a must see in Montreal. The $5 charge is a bargain. It is absolutely beautiful and peaceful. I'm not religious in any way but the artwork in this cathedral is awe-inspiring. The surrounding neighborhood is very charming and worth a stroll.

“Beautiful church”
Reviewed December 8, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful church with a stunning interior. Well worth the suggested entry fee.

The setting of the church was particularly pretty after dark, especially at Christmas when the quark was festively lit.

“I am sorry, but I do not pay to visit a church”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

I may understand that money may be necessary for maintenance, but paying to visit a church is not acceptable in my opinion. Therefore, I rate Basilique Notre-Dame as one, and so I will do with all the other churches where an entrance fee is requested.

“Divinely inspired”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

One of the most beautiful churches in the world. Breath-taking. I've known non-religious people to fall to their knees and pray when they entered.

It's disgusting that the church is treated as a museum by the diocese.
