In a very touristy neighborhood like Old Montreal, it may comes as a huge surprise to see that Notre-Dame de Bonsecours Chapel is situated in a corner few travelers dare to explore. And it's such a shame because this chapel is one of my absolute...More

We visited several chapels, churches and cathedrals while in Montreal and the Notre-Dame-de-Bonsecours Chapel should not be missed. Although I'm not a religious person, I appreciate the architecture and history of this Chapel. It was a nice visit and a much quieter visit than Notre...More

The Chapel is interesting, but more of a tourist attraction since it is connected to the Museum of Marguerite Bourgeoys next door. Visit the Museum first and then stroll through the chapel which Marguerite built.

Perfectly charming little chapel with small boats hanging from the ceiling. This was not a place that was on my radar, but it was part of a walking tour I was on and I'm pleased we went in.

A must see in Montreal. Simple, historical, and a meaningful part of Montreal's history. The docent was excellent and speaks several languages.

Easily missed as it’s beyond the Marche and not signposted. If it looks closed, pull the door hard as it probably is open. It’s a very pretty church inside and we loved the little boats hanging from the ceiling.

Small admission price to enter this church but well worth it. Beautiful inside and the church was lined along each side with gorgeous confessionals.

We stopped here at this free admission chapel twice during our visit. It is far smaller and simpler than the large Notre Dame Basilica, but peaceful and beautiful in its decorations. Do not miss the statues on the chapel on the exterior port side of...More

That depends upon your budget. As the other reviewer said, there are many small, reasonably priced hotels (auberges) in Place Jacques Cartier; or you can walk maybe 1/4 mile to upscale hotels on Rue Dorchester, on the... More

We spent a couple hours there. The only guided tour portion we took was the archaeological dig, since you cNt see that on your own. Nice audio guide for the museum.
