Definitely make this a priority to see while in Montreal. Stunning architecture. Reasonably priced and you can stay as long as you would like. *Restrooms on the lower level, which we appreciated after a long day of touring.

We been to the National Cathedral in Washington and to the Basilica. I personally liked the Cathedral much better, however the architectural details are simply incredible. The space is crowded with a lot of people moving around, but it is well worth the visit

A must see! Worth every penny! Lights, sounds, special effects you will get it all. I Strongly suggest visiting the Basilica, see the AURA show and participate in the mass.

This is a very beautiful and impressive church. Know, though, that there other beautiful old churches to see in and around old Montreal. We enjoyed a brief tour of the place - admission was $6 Canadian.
