“One of the Most Beautiful Churches I Have Seen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

If you are going to Montreal, One of the MUST SEE places is definitely going inside Montreal's Notre Dam Basilica. There is a small fee (if you are not attending mass) that you have to pay to enter and take photos but its worth it. Whenever we go to Montreal we always pass by this church.

“amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

This is one of the most beautiful pieces of architecture. The colours are absolutely stunning. This is a must see. I believe the night light show is also exceptional but unfortunately we didn't see it.

“Stunning colours”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

I don't usually enjoy wandering around churches, but it was raining and I wanted shelter. Glad I popped in. The colours are stunning. It's well worth the $5 to wander around.

“Beautiful cathedral”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

This is probably the most interesting and beautiful thing to see in the Old Town area of Montreal. The cathedral is beautiful inside, and is very typical of a gothic style cathedral that you'd see in places like Paris. There is a $5/CAD admission charge to enter.

“Nothing but magnificent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014 via mobile

On the second day in Montreal then we realize this grand building was near our hotel, just 5 mins walk! Very different view between day and night. We booked a light show on our last night in old Montreal, which last about 35 minutes and another 15 minutes for tourists to take photos. Decor was breathtaking especially under the light!
