This church is very historic, having opened in 1847.
The architecture is very striking.
It is a wonderful experience to be able to pray there.

“Unexpected surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

While viewing the inside of the basilica, we had the absolute pleasure of receiving an impromptue tour from a long time parishioner. So much history within this place of worship that extends beyond religion to the early days of Montreal.
Take note that there is a slope downward from the back of the church to the altar. Be alert to the variety of saints depicted around the walls and find the unique saint!
