This impressive basilica is wonderful when it is open. Often, you are able to enter during special concert events. If you are lucky, you will even get a tour of the Casavant Organ.

We sang Beethoven's Missa Solemnis here; the acoustics are superb. And the basilica, inside and out is grandly beautiful, with architectural details one does not usually find in our country. Worth coming to see even if you do not plan to worship here.
