Loved listening to the organ. Every afternoon at 14:00pm, the Organ is played for an hour and you can buy the ticket to visit the Basilica and listen to the concert at the same time.

Exquisite. Some similarly beautiful basilicas in Europe don't charge a fee but for the price of a big mac, this is not too bad. Worth it.

A must-do in Montreal. The exterior is beautiful, but the interior is simply amazing. We spent nearly an hour enjoying the stained glass windows, the magnificent alter and the atmosphere that was very peaceful.

I have been in many many basilicas and cathedrals in old Europe, as my daughter is studying art history and has a great interest in those. I didn't know what to expect when I visited Notre-Dame in Montreal, as travel guide didn't say much about it. But I was surprised by the beauty of the cathedral - it is just marvellous. Definitely must see in Montreal. I spent nearly 1,5 hour just following the guided tours, listening the history and enjoying the view.
The altar area is very beautiful and they have enhanced the view with colourful lights. So it is something which is difficult to describe, you should see it by yourself.

The ornate woodwork and artistic value alone should draw everyone to view this masterpiece of architecture. The fee to visit as a tourist is minimal and worth every penny. I could sit in there for hours just admiring the beauty. Definitely a must see in Montreal and I think a must see if coming northeast.
