A wonderful Montreal landmark to make sure you take time to visit while in the city. No matter what your religion it is a spectacular building and well worth your time.

The exterior looks like a smaller version of the Notre Dame, but the interior is more reminiscent of Ste. Chappelle, and in fact the architect was influenced by that beautiful church. There is deep red, blue and yellow on the walls and columns and gold stars everywhere, including the dark blue ceiling. The use of backlighting on various architectural features, and especially on the altar is gorgeous. This is one of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen.

Visited the Basilica on Friday afternoon. Very Beautiful. Make sure you take the guided tour as it gives an excellent history of the church and its place in the development of the community.

Very beautiful~! Even if you aren't a religious person, the sheer grandeur of the architecture and creativity in this church is well worth the visit. We did not do the tour. We chose to wander at our own pace.
