I arrived in Montreal on a bitterly cold day. In the early afternoon, I took sanctuary from the weather probably like millions of pilgrims over time. Such a beautiful church. The organist was practising whilst I was there - an added wonderful dimension to my visit. If you have time, take advantage of the guided tours - informative & interesting.

The midnight mass was magnificent with the best (angelic) choir ever heard! A simple five minute walk from the hotel and you arrive in Heaven. I'm RC and my partner Jewish. Didn't matter, she was as elevated as I was!

A friend and I did a self tour and found the church to be a great place for photography! The architecture and alter were amazing! They have guided tours as well and I would opt for the guided tour the next time I make it back to Montreal.

I hate paying to visit a church, but this was worth it. The architecture and history is amazing. One of my favorite memories of Montreal.

This place was massive, ornate, and grand. It has three levels with beautiful ceiling and ornate columns. It was also surprisingly warm on a very cold January day. It is a few minutes walk from the underground city if you exit from the Westin hotel. Worth a visit even on a cold day.

A must see place in Montreal. An amazing basilica in the heart of the Old Town in Montreal, that has stunning architecture and beautiful vitraux.

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.
