Great place to visit

Very beautiful inside. Went for mass on Sunday as it was only a block from the hotel. Best way to experience a Catholic Church is by doing so in my opinion.

I always love churches and their grandeur styles. This one is filled with color and paint, definitely worth a look and a quiet rest or prayer.

It's a good place if you want some quietness, and rest after moving around for the whole day, it gave me a kind of warm feel as compared to those that were more of a tourist attraction.

I have passed beside it a lot in my numerous visits to Montreal, but after seeing many churches in Europe I paid attention to it. It is definitely a gem without attention. It has excellent decorations in its interior.

This is one of the most beautiful tributes to Our Lady of Lourdes I have ever seen. A real treasure for this city that was once named for the Blessed Virgin.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
