    Nice Cathedral; you must see it from the outside
    You can't miss this cathedral from the outside when driving on boul. Rene Levesque. Beautiful exterior with several unique statues. Pros: The exterior is simply....Wow! Free to enter; taking photos allowed throughout the cathedral Close to other scenic areas in Montreal; easy to get there by foot Nice large interior with paintings depicting scenarios tied with Quebec's Catholic history (e.g. Marguerite Bourgeoys) Really liked the cupola and altarpiece Cons: If visiting as tourist, I would still rate St. Joseph's oratory and Basilica Notre Dame higher than this one. Try to pass by at least once from the outside.

    A must see when in Montreal - Old world Cathedral
    Built in the 19th century, this cathedral was modeled after St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. Such a wonderful structure. It certainly does not feel like it is in North America. Admission is free and there is a small gift shop near the entrance. There is certainly an old world feel to the cathedral. A must see when in Montreal.

    Beautiful cathedral
    Beautiful cathedral. No admission fee. Definitely worth a visit. The first time we stopped by, a wedding was taking place, and we were turned away. When we came back, we caught the last minute of a mass and enjoyed the organ postlude.

    Beautiful and peaceful
    This is a large beautiful cathedral in central Montreal, nextdoor to the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth Hotel. Whatever is happening outside with the noise and cold of modern Montreal in November, is forgotten when you enter and appreciate the art, beauty and scale of this place. Even as a non-religious person I found this place to be quite extraordinary and definitely worth a visit.

    Celebrated Mass
    We arrived just as mass started and we stayed through its entirety. Mass was conducted only in French but we were still able to follow along. The hymns and the organ sounded amazing with so much more depth in this huge cathedral versus our hometown. I would definitely want to attend mass here on a regular basis. After mass, we had the opportunity to explore and were impressed with the overall size of the entire cathedral, built after St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican, but even at this size it was just the 3rd largest in Quebec.

    Beautiful cathedral
    This is a very large catholic cathedral in the city centre. It contains many beautiful windows. the ceiling is a work of art. The sculptures on the front of the cathedral are very impressive. Very calm place to walk round especially when the choir was in singing.

This is a lovely cathedral. It was next door to the hotel we were staying in. I'm not sure I would have gone out of my way to visit but I did enjoy it.

You can't miss this cathedral from the outside when driving on boul. Rene Levesque. Beautiful exterior with several unique statues.

Pros:
The exterior is simply....Wow!
Free to enter; taking photos allowed throughout the cathedral
Close to other scenic areas in Montreal; easy to get there by foot
Nice large interior with paintings depicting scenarios tied with Quebec's Catholic history (e.g. Marguerite Bourgeoys)
Really liked the cupola and altarpiece

Cons:
If visiting as tourist, I would still rate St. Joseph's oratory and Basilica Notre Dame higher than this one. Try to pass by at least once from the outside.

A really nice place to stop and have a reflective few minutes, not too over the top and we felt comfortable walking round and sitting for a bit. The security guard come concierge was very friendly and helpful.

Beautiful basilica! Closer to hotels for mass and 8am Sunday mass is in English - we had a singer with a beautiful voice, and the homily was excellent. (Notre Dame masses are all in French.)

Great ceiling and dome from both inside and out. Reminiscent of St Peter's in Rome. Incense from a recent service still wafting around added to the atmosphere.
