Beautiful church with a stunning interior. Well worth the suggested entry fee.

The setting of the church was particularly pretty after dark, especially at Christmas when the quark was festively lit.

I may understand that money may be necessary for maintenance, but paying to visit a church is not acceptable in my opinion. Therefore, I rate Basilique Notre-Dame as one, and so I will do with all the other churches where an entrance fee is requested.

One of the most beautiful churches in the world. Breath-taking. I've known non-religious people to fall to their knees and pray when they entered.

It's disgusting that the church is treated as a museum by the diocese.

The Basilica was very beautiful. We attended the Mass in French on Sunday and it was very warm & welcoming. Must stop by if in Montreal!

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.
