Although being just "another cathedral", this one really impressed me for its dimensions. Several floors with so many details I got overwhelmed. The main saloon is so high I spent several minutes just looking at it trying to absorb such greatness

Loved the beautiful grounds-feel of whole experience-viewing of the "coeur". The works of a loving and dedicated man lives on.

Went in to visit, was beautiful inside, souvenirs were not to expensive, good story behind it, lots of stairs but they have elevators inside so you can see the levels. Beautiful views worth a visit if you have never been

An very worthwhile visit and easy to access by car in Montreal. Spectacular architecture in an incredible setting. Views both inside and out may be among the best in Montreal.

Ascend the stairs on your knees, and experience one of the most fulfilling moments of your life.... I have witnessed many different faiths other than Catholics participating in this simp act... once in the Oratory it is simply amazing. A must destination for any visitor to the city.
