La basilique Notre-Dame de Montréal, sise dans l'arrondissement de Ville-Marie à Montréal, est l'église-mère de Montréal. Véritable galerie d'art religieux, la richesse de ses ornements n'a pas d'équivalent à Montréal.

    A church with a rich history in direct contact with the city of Montreal. Admirable to visit. "And there was light" activity to do, no excuse. A must in the Old Port of Montreal

    Une église avec une riche histoire. Une basilique admirable à visiter. "Et la lumière fut" activité à faire à tout prix. Un must au Vieux-Port de Montréal

    Jolie éclairée, mais sans grand intérêt. L'accès est payant (5$CAD), il y a des guides, les flash d'appareil photo sont autorisés,... la basilique ressemble plus à un musée qui n'a rien de religieux.

  • Martin S.

    Dommage que l'entrée soi payante …

    Before the 11:00am and 17:00 masses on Sundays there is an organ audition (mini concert) that lasts 30 min. The Basilica's organist, M. Pierre Grandmaison, is a must-hear attraction in Montreal.
