We make a special point to visit this chapel each time we come to Montreal. We are especially intrigued with its history, the maritime connections and with the beautiful ship-shaped chandeliers that hang from the ceiling of the sanctuary.

The chapel (oldest in Montreal) is nice, but not quite Wow. Helpful staff. Great windows. Useful signage.

We visited the Notre Dame Bonsecours Chapel, also known as the Sailors’ Church, out of curiosity. Small ships were suspended from the ceiling of the church by sailors and their families as thanks for safe passage at sea. Though it is not a grand church like the Notre Dame Basilica, we enjoyed our visit there. It was something different and interesting. We also liked the intimate atmosphere.

Both exterior and interior are worth the visit. It gives a very "living" impression, the real feeling of a place that receives many people.

Very pretty chapel in the old part of town, dates back a few centuries and built to welcome the ships pulling into the port. A part of history.

Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours Chapel is rich in the history of Montreal and offers spectacular views from its lookout. There is an entrance fee which seemed high but it did allow us access to the rest rooms.

There are ticket machines in the station from which you can buy a disposable card and load it with 24 hr, 3 day, weekend or just one trip. There are only 4 lines so just decide which direction you are going and follow signs. The trains are usually every 5 to 10 mins and are fairly clean. Hardest part is to find the Metro stations themselves and then to exit onto the right road! Don't be concerned about changing between lines its very simple. I believe the tickets can also be used on the buses.

So glad that we decided to see it! We even were lucky to attend a mass in English while we were there! Amazing history! Learned about St. Marguerite! Wonderful Jew from the bell tower as well! Good museum with nice gift shop.
