We lucked out and heard an hour organ recital right before our tour. Worth taking the tour that is included in the price and learning about the history.

Yes, it is very beautiful inside but rather expensive ($6CD) just to view the inside of this basilica. The brochures that are available in the back of the church give a very basic overview of the history and important features of this church. Docent led...More

A very beautiful cathedral in equally beautiful old city of Montreal. The architecture, the glass work, the beauty inside out is just worth seeing. The outside and neighbourhood old city is stunning and must see. Ambience inside is very beautiful.

Great deco inside. $6 a bit steep, but free if you go to see Jesus. Try to match your visit with a free organ or other concert.

Worth visiting - a genuine sense of holiness pervades the Basilica. Take time to look at the side chapels.

Amazing Roman Catholic basilica in Old Montreal. Make an effort to attend when the organ is in use! Breathtaking sanctuary and stained glass, souvenirs are lovely but a bit pricey.
