This church is so much brighter and modern than Notre Dame Cathedral. Say a pray, meditate, take in the beauty!

One of the amazing things about Montreal is that you find beautiful old buildings in between to modern towers which make up the skyline. This scaled down model of St. Peter’s is a fine example of this.

This church was modelled after St. Peter's Basilica in Rome, but only 1/3 of the size. If you would like to see what St. Peter's Basilica looks like then this is a good free stop to make.

Montreal has many beautiful churches and this one ranks very high. Many compare this basilica to the Vatican. The interior is absolutely beautiful and filled with history.

This is more or less a smaller version (and much more conservatively appointed) of St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican. It is good for a quick walk through, but if you are limited for time, I definitely recommend Notre Dame Basilica over this.sa

While strolling around Montreal, we decided to walk in to see the inside of this beautiful basilica. As there were no religious services, we were able to simply drift along, taking in the calm and serenity. It is a gorgeous building, both inside and out;...More

This was beautiful. The inside was inspiring and lovely. I couldn't walk much but just sitting in the pews and in the atmosphere makes you calm and serene.

Both outside and inside this is an impressive building. However our visit was limited by there being no information in English about the history of the building, or what things you should look out for in your tour. It seemed a rather lifeless building -...More

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
