I have visited this Notre Dame over a dozen times ever since I was a little girl. Of all the Notre Dames and different cathedrals I've seen in my life, this is the one that stands out the most. The moment you walk into the cathedral, the beautiful deep blue interior strikes you and all you can do is stare... More

Worth the visit. The architecture is very well done. The mill work is exceptional at times. The organ during the tour is impressive. The main sanctuary is a standout Canadian historic site. My favourite was the more modern chapel, in behind the main sanctuary. Extraordinary modern sculpture mixed with classic gold leaf motifs. Only complaint is about people who ignored... More

I typically do not visit churches when I travel - but Notre-Dame Basilica is such a part of Montreal and Canadian history that I had to see it. And it was amazing ! You know that feeling when you travel - "Thank Goodness I made the effort because it was so worth it". Majestic, beautiful, tranquil......... And so easily accessible... More

There is a lot to see in Old Montreal but you must not miss this one. Sumptuous decor, sculptures of gold and blue hue. Very impressive. There is entry fee though. Check out the concert schedule to catch some beautiful music, it has excellent acoustics but uncomfortable wooden church benches. A walk away from many restaurants.

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighbourhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic centre of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its centre, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theatre.
