    It's definitely a smaller version of "The" Notre Dame in Paris. Which is even more disappointing that it costs money to get in whereas the one in Paris is free, at least it was when I visited.

    The most beautiful neogotic Cathedral I've ever seen. You must pay $6 CAD to access and can take all pictures you want
  • Gokhan K.
    You must pay at the entrance to pray or visit :))) so it is a church for the people who have money; if you do not have money then you can not pray. Isn't it weird?

    Have to pay for entrance all the time but the interiors are beautiful. Make sure to check out the adjacent chapels for contrasting architecture. Very low lighting but definitely a must see!

    It is one of the most popular attractions in the Old Town of Montreal. Little hint: On a smaller scale the outside of the Basilica is an exact replica of the well-known Basilique Notre-Dame in Paris.

    Hermosa arquitectura, si se da un aire con su homónima de París. Si quieres entrar, recuerda que es una iglesia por lo que es conveniente verificar los horarios en que está abierta.

    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.
