Holy place to visit.
Sep. 2021
There was an exposition of Blessed Sacrament when I walked in at 10:30am on a Monday. It was peaceful and a quiet place to pray/meditate.

It is a beautiful Cathedral, right across from Fairmont Queen Elizabeth.

There is also a religious store at the corner from the main lobby. It has a lot of great statues and crosses that I dont typically find in other catholic stores.

It is welcoming, even if you are not a Catholic --- a recommended place to sit quietly and reflect.

Majestic Cathedral Resembling St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome

Majestic Cathedral Resembling St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome

We visited Cathedral of Marie-Reine-du-Monde by metro. Using 1-day metro ticket, we boarded an Orange Line metro train (to “Cote Vertu” direction) at “Place-D’-Armes” station, and got off at Bonaventure Station (2nd stop). Following the sign “Edicule De la Cathedrale”, we walked out of the station to “Rue de la Cathedrale”, where we turned right. We walked along the street with colorful foliage about 250 meters to the cathedral on the right side. The majestic cathedral had the statues of Montreal’s 13 patron saints on the rooftop with huge cupola behind, which resembled the rooftop statues and the cupola of Saint Peter’s Basilica in Rome. Upon entering the cathedral, we were greeted by the beautiful Neo-Baroque style nave with round arched ceiling and ornate columns in light color. The high altar was covered by a canopy, supported by a twisted column on each side, which also resembled the sculptured bronze canopy covering the altar at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome. The nave gave us a feel of warmth and peacefulness unlike oppressive feel of Gothic naves. The crucifix above the Baptismal Font and the great pipe organ on the wall were all impressive. Upon leaving the cathedral, we walked back toward the metro station, passing by the beautiful foliage and a row of cute “CAR 2GO” cars parked along the curb. Upon returning to Bonaventure metro station, we took an Orange Line train to our next attraction, “Saint Joseph's Oratory of Mount Royal”. Details of our metro trip to the Oratory are shown in our review of the Oratory on TripAdvisor site. Cathedral of Marie-Reine-du-Monde is a must see site in Montreal.

Stunning 1870's building lined with statues overlooking the front. Inside the ceiling will give you neck ache as you wonder at it, and the dome ..... beautiful

I always visit this cathedral when I visit Montreal, and had the opportunity to ardent few masses (in French).

The site itself attracts many tourists to see the paintings and statues. It is very peaceful to pause for a few moments to think, reflect and enjoy the atmosphere.

Stunning Cathedral, wonderful choir
Nov. 2019
The requiem choir, from the Montreal Polyphonic Choir under the direction of its conductor Louis Lavigueur presented Maurice Duruflé's Requiem in November. Beautiful, with soloists and a wonderful setting.
The architecture and history here is worth the trip alone. Try coincide your trip with choir masses or concerts.
