This beautiful, small jewel of a church was immortalized in the song, Suzanne, by Leonard Cohen. It is better known as the "Sailor's Church" and overlooks the harbour of the Old Port. The exterior facade is intricate and delicate, the interior beautifully decorated, but the tour de force is climbing the stairway to the top for a wonderful view of the Church's rear and the Port as well as Old Montreal. This costs a few dollars but is well worth it. You get a terrific view of Bonsecours Market from there. You can easily see why Leonard Cohen was enraptured and inspired by "our Lady of the Harbour" protecting the sailors as they left on their voyages.

The chapel at Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours is distinctive, ornamented, and rich in detail. The space is very reassuring and beautiful-- truly prayerful and reflective. When I visited, someone was playing the organ, and this really enriched the visit though I don't know how often this happens. The ships suspended throughout the nave really add character to the chapel. I also visited the museum. The miniature room told the story of St. Marguerite Bourgeoys. It seemed complete, but was a little mawkish and perhaps best suited to children. The portrait room was a highlight, as was the crypt and archeological site accessed with a guide from the crypt. The story of the chapel and the questions answered (and raised) by the finding of the original chapel are very interesting. I also enjoyed walking up the tower. All told, this is a very enriching little slice of the history of Montreal, and I definitely recommend it.

Right on Rue St. Paul in the heart of Old Montreal, this is a very old church originally built as the sailor's church. For $7 CA we were able to climb to the top of the bell tower, where we got a close-up view of the sculptures on the roof, and a fantastic view of the city and river. Not a bad climb; around 110 steps. At night, the church glows from inside to show off the fantastic stained glass windows.
