Do yourself a favor... set aside 30 minutes and $5.00 and visit this church. The Gothic architecture is amazing and the interior is stunningly beautiful.

“Incredible”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

What can be said of this incredible cathedral? Spectacular, beautiful, inspiring, breathtaking......it's truly incredible. We arrived on a rainy day, and felt the embrace of this warm, serene and incredibly peaceful church the minute we walked through the doors. It's unbelievable that such a masterpiece was created so long ago. A must see when in Montreal.

“Great value attraction, Take the free tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

This is an attraction that is definitely worth your time to stop at if you are wandering through Old Montreal. Admission is $5 and you can join either an English or French speaking tour for free, which I would highly recommend, They have brochures available but the tour guide gave much more insight and history and made the whole experience more enjoyable. Make sure to visit the sacred heart chapel in the back which has beautiful modern decor.
